Nursery – Mrs Terrell

(We are the Very Hungry Caterpillars!)

We explore and learn through play all through the day! Alongside our experiences at home and with our families, nursery is the beginning of a life long learning journey, and what an exciting place to start! 

Please look at our nursery blogs to find out more.

Tankersley Toy Shop

This week in Nursery, a new toy shop opened selling great toys at bargain prices. Customers can buy a laptop for 10p, a dinosaur for 2p, a book for 4p, a teddy for 5p and a Worry Monster for 5p!

Customers have to recognise the number on the toy’s price labels and count out the correct number of penny coins to give to the shopkeeper. As you can imagine, it is a very popular place to visit!

We Wish you a Merry Christmas!

The Nursery children took part in our Christmas Nativity and Festive  Sing- along this week. The children were so excited to perform in front of their family and friends.

Thank you to everyone who came to watch our little stars! (Nursery was full to bursting!)

Bishop Pete

The Nursery children really enjoyed their visit from the Bishop of Sheffield, Pete Wilcox. They asked him interesting, challenging questions  and listened carefully to his answers. Freddie asked, ” What would you like for Christmas.” (Gloves) Elijah asked, ” What is your favourite Bible story?” ( Jonah and the big fish)  Winter asked, “Do unicorns go to heaven with Jesus?” ( Yes, everything can go to heaven.)

Freddie noticed Bishop Pete’s staff and at lunch time he showed Mrs Terrell his crisp and said, ” It looks just like Bishop Pete’s stick!” It certainly did!

Festive Fun at Chatsworth Farmyard

This week the Hungry Caterpillars and the Shining Stars enjoyed our traditional, festive visit to Chatsworth Farmyard. The slightly wet weather did not dampen our spirits!

We enjoyed getting glittery, sticky and creative in the Christmas crafts room, seeing the farm animals, handling guinea pigs, riding tractors, playing in the adventure playground and, of course, being part of the wonderful Nativity play in the big barn. A fantastic, fun time was had by all!

Happy Wedding Day!

The nursery children have been learning about marriage and weddings for two weeks. This week they have taken part in a pretend wedding. A corner of nursery transformed into St. Peter’s church and Mrs Terrell pretended to be the vicar. It was a lovely, happy occasion. We must say a HUGE thank you to Kayleigh Bell, Danni Godfrey, Wendy Oldfield, Mrs Flannery and Patricia Godfrey for all their help. The beautiful wedding cake was made by Patricia Godfrey and it was absolutely delicious!

Congratulations to the happy couple, Winter and Freddie!

We Will Remember Them…

We have been learning about Remembrance Day in Nursery. We found out why people wear poppies. We looked at poppies and painted pictures of them for a lovely display.

We were quiet for 1 minute while we thought about the soldiers who have died fighting in wars.
