Happy Hive - help with resourcing

11th May 2021

11th May 2021

Dear school community,

As we prepare to open our Nurture Group Classroom, we are asking for the assistance of our staff, parents and wider community members with resourcing it, where possible.  This room will be a hybrid of a home/school environment and there is a need for a great amount of furniture and equipment, much of which we have purchased ourselves.  If you can possibly help us by donating, or sponsoring, any of the following items (in new or nearly new condition), please email or phone the school office on 028 38323163.  Alternatively, smaller items can be placed in a box at the office door.

Circular rug(colourful)

Fleecy blankets

Pots & Pans


Kitchenware (plates, bowls, cutlery, cups, glasses etc.)

Mixing bowls and baking implements eg spoons, measuring cups, cookie cutters etc


Cleaning implements (eg dustpan and brush)

Gardening aids (gloves, wellies etc)

Doll's pram or pushchair

Construction toys and Megabloks

Children’s books

Superhero costumes

Fairy lights/torches

Large teddy for circle time

Board games eg. Jenga, Guess Who

Sensory play resources

Weighted animals/cushions/blankets


Your support and generosity are very much appreciated.


Thank you in advance,

Mrs Carol McCafferty

Nurture Teacher
