Djanogly Sherwood Academy

Where Everyone Belongs

Ebury, Beech and Regent

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.

Summer 2 - Beech and Regent

Welcome back, we hope you had a fantastic half term break and are ready to complete the final half term of this school year :)


This term we will be celebrating: 


Fathers Day

Sports Day 


Red Ted's Picnic 


We really enjoyed watching our caterpillars grow and create their cocoons. They unfortunately took longer than expected to hatch into butterflies, however Mrs Curwood kindly took them home so that she could feed them when they hatched to make them strong enough to be released. She will be videoing the release and sending the video to all children on evidence me. 


We are celebrating our 'Djanogly Dozen' this term as Beech and Regent are heading off to White Post Farm! We are so excited to feed and pet the animals!  Please ensure that you have filled out the permission slip and sent the payment to Arbor so that you child can take part in this experience with us. 


We will be carrying out a 'Sports Day' this term also. We complete our sports day separately from the school as Beech, Regent will be carrying this out together. We would love you to come and join us and hopefully weather dependent we will be carrying out the races outside the unit and be able to enjoy an ice pop in the sunshine! 


Your child will continue to take home a reading for pleasure book each week and they will have a reading book. It is important to read these books at home to promote a love for reading and to practice their phonics skills. Each child has their own reading diary and if you write in here each time you read you child will get rewards! :) 


This term we will be celebrating those children that have read at home 125 times with a 'Red Ted's Picnic' there is still time for more children to attend. get reading every night at home to have  chance at being part of this! You can do it! 


Our Drawing club focus for this term will be:

What the Ladybird Heard


The Little Red Hen 

Hansel and Gretal


Mr Benn Zoo Keeper

Super Worm




Welcome back from Ebury


The children have had a fantastic first week back and are very excited to continue their learning!

This half term we will be focusing on mass and capacity in maths. This is something you could do at home with your children too by getting them to guess which container would hold the most and then testing it out.

The book we are focusing on is 'Little Red Riding Hood' by Caperucita Roja. It is a great story and we will be doing some artwork and drama based around our story.


We are having our Curriculum Choice day on the 24th April, where Ebury will be joining Little Acorns to explore Italy. We will be making pizzas, threading pasta and so much more!

Brilliant Books 


Please see our 'Brilliant Books' poster below. This displays the books that are deemed the best books currently for this age group of children. 

We have all of these books displayed in our room and our children will have the opportunity to explore them in the environment and read them as part of our story time. 

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.
