Nursery

Welcome to our Nursery. Our teacher is Mrs McCormick and our classroom assistant is Mrs McCloskey. There are 26 children in our class. 

We use a visual timetable to help us focus and concentrate in Nursery. This helps to develop our listening skills. We also discuss the weather and we learn the names of the seasons and the days of the week. Fifi, our Rights Respecting Fairy ensures that we learn in an environment of fun, kindness and safety. 

Article 28 states, “ Every child has the right to a quality education.”

Fifi our Rights Respecting Fairy tells us all about our RIGHTS!
