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.

Autumn 1 Newsletter

Welcome to Autumn 1

Welcome back everyone! We look forward to welcoming back children who have already been with us and are excited to meet all of our new faces.  It's been far too long since we've seen you all! 


This term will be spent getting to know the children and their interests, so that we can plan our curriculum to suit their individual needs.  We will be asking for parent support to get to know the children better. 


Our books of the week this half term are...


The Colour Monster

My Mum and Dad Make Me Laugh

Owl Babies

Percy the Park Keeper - After the Storm

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

We have been working hard to make the Foundation Unit ready for you!  Have a look at some of the pictures below to see what it looks like.


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.



Please find below some useful links to use with your children. 


Cosmic Yoga:

Keep active and try some child friendly yoga. It will help stretch and exercise your body whilst telling a story. 


Nursery and number rhymes

Listen and sing a long to a range of songs including counting, action and traditional rhymes.

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’.
