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.

Home Learning 

We're so sorry we have to stay home again.  We were really looking forward to welcoming you back and finding out all about your Christmas break.  We will try really hard to make sure you don't miss out on any learning.  Each week we will be uploading a daily maths phonics, maths and book of the week session for you to do at home.  Have a look at the timetable to find out what you should do each day.  We will also be sending you daily challenges on Evidence Me to take part in.  Make sure you share your learning on Evidence Me so that we can see what you have been doing and respond to your learning.


If you would like a paper pack of work, these will also be available.  Please ask at main reception.


Please share your home learning with us on Evidence Me or at

Big Garden Birdwatch

This week we are setting you a special project. This weekend (29th, 30th, 31st) is the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch and we thought it would be great to take part. All you have to do is see how many birds come into your garden in the space of 1 hour and then report this to the RSPB You can watch the video below for more information and to see some birds you might see. To help encourage birds into your garden we've put some activities below the video for you to do, such as make a bird feeder. We've also put the bird spotting sheet from the RSPB. All information is available on the RSPB website and the link is below. If you would like to receive a paper pack with these in, then let us know and we'll get one ready for you. Happy spotting!

You can get the following in a paper pack from school.  Just let us know if you would like one.

Foundation Christmas Performance


We hope you love our A-Z of Christmas as much as we do!

The A-Z of Christmas

Foundation's Christmas performance of 'The a-z of Christmas'


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.



Reading at home

This video will support you to read with your child at home.

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.

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:
