Welcome to Storytellers  



Welcome to our Nursery blog ...


In our spacious inviting nursery we work hard to offer a nurturing and supportive learning environment for the children to thrive and grow. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum with an emphasis on promoting the characteristics of effective learning. 


This approach fosters a love of learning and provides challenge linked closely to developmentally age appropriate experience. We strive to create an environment where the children feel confident to explore and discover new things. We have weekly forest school activities and have constant access to a large safe outdoors space and all-weather area. All meals are cooked daily on site by our wonderful cook. 


As a Nursery, we understand that all children are unique and understand the importance of following their individual interests.


We are set just outside the beautiful village of Blisland which is 10 mins from Bodmin town centre.

As we are a smaller setting we can only offer 10 places per year group but this therefore ensures a very high level of interaction with adults and quality input for your child while they are with us. We are very family orientated and have strong community connections. 



We can offer places to children from the age  2yrs and offer 3yrs funding and 30 hour funding. More information can be found here: www.gov.uk/30-hours-free-childcare

Lunch available from 12-1pm      at £4.00 plus meal cost or home packed lunch.

Afternoon session would be from 12-3.15pm     at £13plus meal cost or home packed lunch. 

All day session 8.40am - 3.15pm     £26 plus the meal or home packed lunch.


We are offering a fourth session free if you pay for 3 . It can be just mornings or a full day.  Your equivalent 4th session would be totally free saving up to £26! 



We are very flexible with hours and days so please feel free to ring for more information.


We can offer breakfast club from 8am -8.45 for £2.50 and this includes breakfast and drinks. 

We can offer afterschool care from 3.15 - 4.15pm for £5.00 including snacks. 




We also run a parent and toddler group ' Twiglets' on a Wednesday morning 9-10.30am where you can come along to stay and play and meet new people, have a coffee and get a feel for what we are all about, this runs weekly in term time and its free. Bump to 4yrs.     Weekly information also available.



By following our nursery blog this will allow us to inform you through words and pictures how we promote your child’s learning in the nursery, it is also a great way for you to discuss with your child at home what they have been doing each week.

It’s arrived !!!  

Christmas letters delivered! 

There was great excitement today in class when we received news that our Christmas letters had arrived with Father  Christmas ! He sent us some special photos showing the journey that our letters had gone on to reach father Christmas and father Christmas sent us a special video link to say he had received them and was working through the wishes now and to wish everyone in Storytellers a very merry Christmas!!! Wow! 

 


The Tunnel of lights. 

Visit to the Tunnel of lights and Charlestown. 

Today we all went off on a trip to visit the Tunnel of Lights at Charlestown, the children were extremely excited and embraced everything on offer , we ventured down various tunnels and explored hidden frozen waterfalls, shipwrecks and snowy pirate ships. We also had time for a walk around the harbour and looked at some of the amazing tall ships and little secrete doors on the harbour wall that we now know leads to all the secrete tunnels ! 

 


Special delivery … 

Post office visit. 

The children walked to the village shop to purchase a stamp for their letters to Father Christmas, they were wonderful at asking for a stamp and paying for it. They were extremely lucky to meet the postman as he arrived to collect the post , they all excitedly told him where it needed to go and that he needed to be careful as it was slippery in the North Pole! 

They staff were wonderful in the shop and gave all the children a special little Christmas gift too! 

 


Building our sleigh … 





 
Up, up and away ….

When a very , very large box arrived in class this started a lengthly conversation as to what we could do with it ….. build a sleigh seemed to be the most popular option so the children set to work creating it! They were wonderful at working together painting it and then decorating it so that it was nice and sparkly for Father Christmas to fly in. 

This has proved to be a firm favourite in class and is the focus point for lots of adventures. The children have been talking about different countries they could visit and also role playing various scenarios from reindeers landing on rooftops to rocket propelled sleighs blasting off to space. 

 


Fundraising  



Children in Need day. 

The children in Storytellers thoroughly enjoyed fundraising for Children in need , we made bear biscuits and decorated them with smarties spots and had a competition to see who was eating the most spots! 
The children made some wonderful Pudsey bears and came up with lots of ideas on how we could make them spotty from paints and stamps to large dabber pens. 

 


Learning about Diwali.  

Learning about Diwali. 

The children have been learning all about Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights which is a five day celebration of light over darknesses, good over evil and of nee beginnings. We have looked at how families celebrate and we made our our Divas and also decorated our entrance with coloured chalks making patterns called Rangoli  which are believed to bring good luck. 

 


Remember, remember the 5th of November….  

Embracing everything Nov 5th has to offer. 

This week we have been learning all about November 5th and bonfire night . We have learnt about why we have bonfire night. The children have looked at fireworks around the world and where else they could be used - in celebrations and New Year’s Eve. 
We experimented making our own firework pictures with salt and fluffy paints. 

We also took our learning outside and made little trees with cobwebs and a spider. 
We enjoyed hot chocolate and marshmallows around the fire pit and learnt about bonfire safety and sparkler safety so that we all stay safe when we enjoy bonfire night with our families. 

 


Visiting the pumpkin patch.  

Pumpkin picking fun !


 


Potion commotion!  

Mixing potions ! 

Great fun has been had this week while learning all about mixing. We have experimented with colour mixing , and also mixing different substances to learn about reactions, the children were absolutely fascinated with the reaction that vinegar and bicarbonate created and then by adding different colourings this gave them multicoloured fizz! This has been a fantastic way to explore lots of new language in class and we leant lots of new wow words to describe  what was happening to their mixture.
