Welcome to Moira Nursery Unit!

Have a look at the exciting things we do!













Our monthly focus this month is, 'Cold Climates and Birds'. We will be learning what it is like to live in a cold climate and will discover what animals you might find there. We will also find out about different kinds of birds and we will learn how to take care of garden birds during the cold winter. 

Bird Day - We made binoculars and took them on a bird walk to Moira Demesne. We saw lots of different garden birds. Mrs King, P7 teacher paid a visit to Nursery and read us a story. Mr Neill brought a pigeon into Nursery for us to look at.  


During December we find out about Christmas and all the traditions associated with the festive season. We continue to observe seasonal changes now that Winter has arrived.


Our topic themes this month have included; Day and Night, Space and Our Senses. We have been finding out about space and space travel. We are developing our awareness of seasonal changes and looking at differences between day and night. We have been using our senses to explore and investigate.



During October our topic focus is, 'Family, Autumn, Harvest and the farm'. We have been exploring the changing signs of Autumn and discussing what happens on the farm during Harvest time. We have been finding out about our immediate and our extended family.  




September has been an exciting month for all the boys and girls who have started Nursery. We have been learning new routines, forming new friendships and beginning to settle in to Nursery life.
