First Day at Nursery
Boys and girls have been enjoying their first day at Nursery. There was lots of fun playing, building and painting. Everyone remembered to wash their hands well too.
If you are starting Donacloney Nursery this is where you will find out all about it.
We have lots of special events throughout the year
Everyone has fun when Jo Jingles visits.
We learn new songs, play instruments and move to the music.
Dressing Up Day
Everyone came to Nursery in a costume and we made chocolate apples as a treat.
Our Nursery Nativity 2019.
Everyone played their part really well and put on a great performance for family and friends. We had 26 little stars!
Having fun in the snow
World Book Day
We always love to read books about animals and on World Book Day everyone dressed up in something animal related. We also enjoyed bringing in our animal books and sharing them with our friends.
We are always busy planting seeds, bulbs and plants.
Daffodil bulbs which are planted in the Autumn time come into bloom in the Spring.
Our Stay and Play Days
Mums and Dads have the chance to stay and play. It is fun for the children and their parents.
Happy Healthy Kids
Children at Donacloney Nursery have lots of opportunity for physical, energetic play.
People Who Help Us
We have been learning about 'People Who Help Us' and some Mums and Dads came to Nursery to talk about their jobs.
Having fun with food
We enjoy cooking, baking and trying new foods. We like to promote healthy eating but there are also opportunities for a tasty treat.
We made a big pot of porridge for snack. Not too hot...not too cold... but just right. Just the way Goldilocks likes it!
A very creative Mum helped the children decorate these lovely homemade shortbread hearts. What a sweet idea!
Finding fun ways to use spaghetti
We made Bottle Babies
Odd Sock Day
The Oxford Island Outreach Programme
Learning about Minibeasts
Big Bedtime Read
Mums, Dads and Grandparents were invited to our special Pyjama Day Story time. It was lovely to see everyone snuggling up for another story before home time.
Debbie Doolittle's Wildlife
At Nursery we learn about animals which live in the wild. Debbie brought some of her animals which she rescues and looks after.
The Belfast Health and Social Care Trust website has a short animated video for children to help them understand the coronavirus.
