  Welcome to Churchend School Nursery

              We are known as the

             Tortoise Class 


We hope you all had a super holiday, with lots of fun and are ready to come to Nursery to learn and play. At Nursery we have lots of kind caring grown-ups to help us learn and be safe, they make everything exciting and fun. Our Nursery staff are here to help. Mrs Morris, Miss Croshaw, Miss Danton.               



We welcome back the children who came to play and learn before the holiday. We also welcome all our new friends, who have just started in Nursery and hope you settle in soon, enjoy all the exciting things we learn and have fun playing with the other children and toys.

In Nursery we learn to listen, so that we learn new things and become smarter each day. During number we learn to count, order, recognise and use numbers. We learn to be inquisitive about the world around us and question why things happen. In literacy we learn to write our own name, hold a pencil properly and start to form letters correctly, soon we recognise our name, so that we can find our belongings. There are lots of opportunities to talk and communicate with friends and adults, asking questions and responding to others. Outside we can climb, jump, and run or ride bikes around the road track, we also dig or play in the sand and water, all of this is so much fun. Every session at Nursery is busy and fun filled, with lots of different activities to explore. Each session we share a healthy snack of fruit and a drink together, we pass the fruit to our friends, taking a turn and remembering to say please and thank you to each other. At the end of each session we share a story together and sing songs, sometimes they have actions to remember as we sing, we always sing our song to say goodbye to all our friends (Wind the Bobbin Up).


At Nursery everyone is friends together, we share and take turns with the apparatus and toys.

On Monday, we bring a piece of fruit to share with all our friends at snack time. Monday is our PE day, so we need to wear something comfortable to run around in and wear socks that we can readily put on (not tight ones) and shoes we can fasten. Also on Monday our class mascot Timmy the Tortoise will go home with one of the class for the week, you will be able to take pictures of what he does with you and get an adult to write about his adventures at your house, lucky Timmy getting to come to visit you, then when he returns the following week we will share this exciting work.


On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we need to remember our book bags so that we can choose a book from the library to take home and share with our family.


On Friday the Star of the week trophy will be given out for the boy or girl who has tried really hard that week, when you return it back to school you will then receive a medal to keep to show how super you have been, there will also be a trophy for the boy or girl who has been the Best Friend for the week being kind and caring to others. Most weeks we cook on Friday and make a treat to take home to share, unless it’s too messy to carry home, then we usually eat it at snack time in school.Also on Fridays we can bring something to show our friends and talk about in ‘Show and Tell’, this is a good time to build our confidence talking to others in a bigger group.


At Nursery sometimes things seem difficult, but everyone is there to help us and encourage us to succeed. We learn to have a try at everything and usually we surprise ourselves at how clever we can be. It’s lots of fun and day by day we understand more and want to know more.
