Where Everyone Belongs

Ebury, Beech and Regent

Welcome to Ebury,Beech and Regent Classes

We believe that every early year’s child is unique and has the right to learn through play.

We provide a rich and enabling environment, where children feel they belong, are understood, and are inspired to succeed.

We know that this requires skilful interactions by knowledgeable adults to build the foundations for life.

Homework Summer 1

Ebury homework menu- Summer 1

Beech and Regent visit Aldi

Beech and Regent Class visited Aldi this week to buy the ingredients they need to make pancakes.  The children were really sensible and all had some ingredients they needed to find.  We can't wait to turn them into delicious pancakes.

Autumn 2 - White Post Farm


Beech and Regent Class had an amazing time at White Post Farm.  We didn't let the cold and the rain spoil our fun and loved feeding all the animals

Our Foundation Unit

Our staff have been working extremely hard to get the Foundation Unit ready for the children.  We can't wait to have them back, using all the resources in the classroom. In Foundation the children learn through play. This means that they may sometimes come home messy. This shows that they have been working hard and had enriching experiences throughout their day. Take a look at the pictures below to see how our classroom is set up.


One of the best ways you can support your child's learning is to hear them read at home. This will really help to develop their love of books and reading. Mrs Morris will be supporting you with how you can best support your child at home with their reading.  Children will be bringing home a reading book, some Ted words and information on what to do.  Children who read 24 times over the half term will receive a RED TED (teddy bear).  Please sign their reading diary so that we know your child has read at home.



Where everyone belongs

At Djanogly Sherwood we know that things are challenging and different right now and we wanted to help by sharing some good resources. Here is a video that you could watch and share with your children explaining how to talk to children about race and diversity. We will also be sharing home learning activities and some great books about diversity. We hope that this helps. Remember our strap line at Sherwood is ‘Where everyone belongs’.

Please find below some useful resources you can use to talk about diversity with your children. Click on the blue text to go directly to the link:
