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.

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.

Autumn 1


This term we will be focusing on developing the children's personal, social and emotional development and helping them to settle into their new classes. The children will also meet our 5 R characters which represent our school values.

These are:

Reflective Owl

Resilient Rhino 

Respectful Elephant 

Resourceful Squirrel

Friendly Bee


We will also be exploring a range of books and vocabulary which will develop our children's love for reading and we will be having a themed reading week where we will be looking at books from around the world.

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’.
