Family Drop In Night 2018

Thank you to the many friends and family who attended our Family Drop In Night!  This was a fun-filled night with play activities both inside and outside for all to enjoy!

Family Drop In was a great opportunity to share the success of your child’s first half-term at Knockbreda Nursery School and to find out more about what they have been learning this half-term.  The children enjoyed shared story sessions and Nursery Rhyme themed activities indoors and outdoors.  There were also some Halloween themed treats to enjoy!

PE at Knockbreda Primary School

To mark the start of our work on transition to P1, the Nursery children visited Knockbreda Primary School for an energetic PE session in the school hall.  Over the last year, the children have been working on their fundamental movement skills at Nursery and this was put to good work during our busy PE session!  Well done Knockbreda Nursery!




Sincere thanks to our Chairman Mr McNeill for leading this PE session.

Forest School At Knockbreda Nursery School

Forest School

At Knockbreda Nursery School we are fortunate to enjoy three outdoor spaces and we make full use of these each day, whatever the weather!  Each week we have a full morning of 'Forest School' when we enjoy 'forest free play' in the Sensory Garden.  In addition to exploratory play, there are teacher led activities at our Forest School and these have involved lighting a campfire, creating a bug hotel and planting a herb garden!
