Transition area

Welcome to Beech and Regent Class 2020

 

Hello everyone starting in Beech and Regent class in September.

 

We're looking forward to seeing you all on Monday when you come to collect your transition bags!

 

As you can't come in to school to see us before starting school we thought we'd record you a little video to say hello.  We hope you are as excited as we are!

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:

F2 Home Learning - Beech and Regent Class

Monday 20th July

 

Wow Beech and Regent. Can you believe that it's the final week of school before the summer holidays.  It's such a shame that we didn't get to spend the full year together.  I just wanted to say how proud I am of each and everyone of you.  You all worked so hard in school and made such fantastic progress.  You have continued to make me proud with all of your home learning and have stayed resilient throughout these really tricky times.  I hope you are proud of yourselves too.  I also wanted to say a big thank you to all of the mummys/daddys/grandparents/carers etc for helping the children to learn at home.  We know it hasn't been easy but you've done a fantastic job.  You all deserve a much needed rest over the summer. Fingers crossed the sun shines and you get to enjoy it.  I can't wait to see you all back in September!

 

Miss Palmer :) 

 

This week's home learning can be found in the document 'F2 home learning 20.7.20' . We have another fun week ahead of us wrapping up all the things we've learnt this year, with lots of fun, practical activities.

Ebury Home Learning

 

Wow Ebury Class. Can you believe that it's the final week of school before the summer holidays.  It's such a shame that we didn't get to spend the full year together.  I just wanted to say how proud I am of each and everyone of you.  You all worked so hard in school and made such fantastic progress.  You have continued to make me proud with all of your home learning and have stayed resilient throughout these really tricky times.  I hope you are proud of yourselves too.  I also wanted to say a big thank you to all of the mummys/daddys/grandparents/carers etc for helping the children to learn at home.  We know it hasn't been easy but you've done a fantastic job.  You all deserve a much needed rest over the summer. Fingers crossed the sun shines and you get to enjoy it.  I can't wait to see you all back in September, whether it's in Beech and Regent class or back in Nursery!

Spring 2

 

We are looking forward to another exciting term in the Foundation Unit.  There are lots of exciting things happening this half term.  We will start off by making pancakes, then we will be exploring Spring and will finish the term by finding out about Easter (we may even have an Easter egg hunt!).

 

Our first story cafe last half term was a huge success so keep your eyes peeled for information for this half terms.

 

We would like to welcome Miss Martin who will be the new teacher in Ebury Class. We're very happy to have her join our team.

Spring 1 2020

We will be looking forward to beginning a new year with many more exciting learning opportunities. As we did in the autumn term, we will be talking to you and your children to find out about their interests so that we can plan for these.

 

We will also be using changes in the season to provide new learning experiences for the children, for example we will be investigating winter.

 

We love to explore celebrations and will be using Chinese New Year as an opportunity to celebrate together and find out about our wider community.

 

One of our books of the week will be Little Red Riding Hood. It would be fantastic if you could start reading different versions of this story to your child. Why not join the local library and ask to borrow this story.

Curriculum Choice Day Spring 1

Look out for our important letter about our next curriculum choice which will take place in January. Ebury will join Little Acorns for some exciting activities and share learning and playing together. Beech and Regent will be given a selection of activities from which they will be able to choose what they would like to do.

RED TED

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. Please remember that Mrs Morris and Mrs Selby will be offering a session which you are invited to attend. We will be talking to you about how you can best support your child at home with their reading. Please see the letter for more information.

FANTASTIC prizes are on offer. Every child who reads 24 times during this half term will receive one of these super prizes. 

ENJOY READING WITH YOUR CHILD! smiley

There will be lots of exciting things happening throughout the half term, including sharing in celebrations such as Diwali, Bonfire night and Christmas. 

 

We would like to thank you for your continued support which is so valuable in helping your child to be the best they can possibly be.

Djanogly Dozen - Trip to the theatre

Beech and Regent Class had a fantastic trip to the theatre on Thursday.  We got the bus in to town and went to the Theatre Royal to see the stage version of The Gruffalo.  We all had a fantastic time and loved the show.  The children were so well behaved. We were very proud of them and you should be too!

Autumn 1

Welcome to a new school year.  We look forward to welcoming back children who have already been with us and are excited to meet all of our new faces.  This year we have 2 reception classes.  Mrs Hallam will continue to be Beech Class teacher and Miss Efrat will be joining us to teach Regent Class.  Miss Carter got married over the summer and is now Mrs Morris.  She will be the teaching assistant for both classes.  Mrs Leafe will be teaching Ebury Class with Mrs Haynes as the teaching assistant.

 

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. 

 

We will be holding a welcome meeting on Tuesday 10th September from 3:00pm - 3:30pm.  This will enable us to let you know the sorts of things we do in school and how you can help your child at home.
