Lots of exciting things have been happening outdoors at Nursery this week….
You may have heard that we acquired an extra piece of outdoor space at the end of last school year, which we plan to use as a site for our forest school sessions and lots of other exciting events. This magical space is now called ‘The Spinney’, meaning ‘a small area of trees and bushes’. 🌳🐿️
We are working away at developing the Spinney, and this week saw the delivery of a brand new polytunnel - thanks to Wayne and his team from Polytunnelsni who supplied and installed it on Tuesday.
We hope to grow herbs and vegetables in our new tunnel, as well as using it as a space to shelter and stay dry when the rain gets a bit too much!
We are also extremely fortunate to have Brigid’s parents, the owners of Sow Grateful helping us out with the space, providing super advice and helping us develop it.
If any other parents or carers would like to lend a hand in our Spinney, we would be delighted to have you…. many hands make light work! Get in touch if you are able to help. 🧤🪴

Huge thanks to the parents, carers and staff who came along and helped at our garden day this morning.
The planters, garden furniture and plants from The Secret Garden at Dundonald Nurseries look fantastic and it’s great to see some colour in our nursery garden. 🌱🌸
Everyone worked so hard and we got lots done. The rain stayed away (mostly), the sausage baps went down a treat and we all agreed it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning!
Thanks again everyone 💙💛

Have you ‘herd’ the news?!?! 🐘🌈
Kings Road Nursery School are delighted to be a part of Elmers Big Belfast Trail to raise funds for Northern Ireland Hospice as part of Elmer's Big Belfast Trail
The nursery received a sculpture of Elmer the Elephant to decorate - there was great discussion among the children as to how it should look but they settled on a ‘minibeast’ theme. The children worked hard painting and decorating our Elmer, and they were delighted with the end result 💚🐞🪲🪱
Our finished sculpture is now displayed for all to see in Donegal Arcade and we are super proud to show it off!
Lots of us are heading into town this weekend to visit our Kings Road Elmer….there are lots of other brilliant sculptures to spot too, so be sure to check it out😊
We made our own ‘moon sand’ in nursery this morning- a mix of flour and baby oil. It’s soft and fluffy but can be moulded into shapes easily too. The children loved it and were very busy making sandcastles all morning!!🏖
The yellow room children had their last forest school session today. They were delighted with a fabulous forest school medal to mark all their achievements this year! 🌳🏅
We were delighted to welcome Danielle from NIFSA along to Kings Road yesterday to observe a lesson, part of the forest school level 3 leader qualification being undertaken by two members of staff.
We are so lucky to be able to run these sessions in our own school grounds ☺️🌲🌳🌲🌳
Today Yellow Room have been hunting for bugs in Forest School 🐞🐜🦟🕷🪲🐌 The children found lots of interesting minibeasts and there was great discussion. We warmed ourselves up around the campfire with some sausages for our snack, yummy!
Our new mud kitchen has been a huge hit! Thanks to MessyPlay NI for their great service 😊
We asked our parents for donations of flowers this week, just in time to get all those mothers day flowers that were heading to the bin! 💐
We used these flowers to create some ‘Hapa Zome‘ art during forest school - this is a Japanese artform, where plants and petals are hammered to create beautiful patterns on fabric.
The children used big stones to bash and bang the flowers under their cloth and they loved making all that noise!
Great work everyone 🌟
Yellow Room children worked hard in forest school today. They did some spring cleaning of our mud kitchen and planted some potatoes 🥔🥔 Great work everyone!
We had a fantastic Spring themed show from Mr Hullabaloo today! What a treat for a Monday morning- the children had a great time 😊
We had a super visit from Liz Weir - Irish Storyteller this morning. The children listened beautifully and loved all Liz’s stories and rhymes. Thank you Liz, we had a great morning with you!! ☺️
