EYFS Nursery

Spring 1 - 2018

A very warm welcome back to all our families and children.  We hope you had a lovely holiday.   This term we are welcoming and settling in new children to our nursery, which means that our sessions are going to be a little busier!!  

Unit of Learning

This half term the nursery children will be finding out about where we live.  We will be learning about the areas of Plumstead, Greenwich and how they are part of London.  We will using the internet to find our streets and our homes and thinking about what is good about where we live and what we’d like to change.  As part of this learning we would like you to take two photographs; one of your front door and one of your child standing in front of it.  It would be really helpful if you could upload these images onto Tapestry.  Many thanks.  

Introducing our class teddy Bears

As part of this learning we have two teddy bears that the children will take turns to take home, or take out and about.  Each teddy will come with a journal so that you can write and the children can draw pictures.  It would be great if children were able to take pictures that you could upload onto Tapestry.  We will display a rota in class so that parents know when it is their child’s turn to take a teddy home.  Please have fun with the teddies but make sure you return them on the agreed day so that the next child can have their turn. 

Maths learning

We are continuing our learning by ensuring that children recognise and know some numbers of personal significance and numbers to five and are secure in their numbers to ten. 


As part of our letters and sounds learning we have been tuning into sounds that we hear around us and discriminating between them.  We will continue this learning by listening to instrumental sounds and identifying what is making each sound, then we will move onto rhymes and rhyming words.

Spare clothes

Please ensure that your child has a complete change of clothes in a bag on their peg.  Accidents do happen and we need to be able to change your child quickly into a clean change of clothes so that they are comfortable for the rest of the session. 

Many thanks for your on going support.
