EYFS - Year 1 Transition Meeting

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!


Wow, we can't believe we have one half-term left of our first year at Great Berry!

The children have learnt so much already in their first year at school and we are so proud of the progress they are all making.


Each week we will upload the Weekly Overview where you will be able to learn what our topic is for the week and see a broad explanation of some of our activities in class.


This half-term our topics will include 30th birthday celebrations, Dinosaurs, Pirates and Mermaids and Moving into Year One. 


This half-term we cannot wait to participate in Forest Schools. 

Miss Hall's class will attend on Tuesday 5th June, Tuesday 12th June, Tuesday 19th June, Wednesday 27th June and Tuesday 3rd July.

Mrs Goodbrand's class will attend on Wednesday 6th June, Wednesday 13th June, Wednesday 20th June, Wednesday 4th July and Wednesday 11th July.


Please make sure that on the relevant days children come into school wearing their clothes for Forest School (lightweight trousers, old trainers, a top with preferably with long sleeves, and if needed a waterproof coat). They will need to bring their school uniform in a bag with them, so that they can get changed when we come back to school.


Due to Mrs Goodbrand's class attending Forest School on Wednesdays, our PE days will change to a Thursday afternoon.

Jewellery will therefore need to be removed on this day please.  


Homework books will be given out on a Thursday. They will need to be returned by the following Tuesday.  Ideas for homework will be available on the Weekly Overviews. Each week please give feedback on how your child found the activities, by leaving a short comment with their homework. 

Barnaby will be given out each Friday to somebody that has particularly impressed us for that week. We look forward to hearing and reading about the adventures he has, whether it be playing at home, visiting friends or family or, if he's lucky a trip out!


Each colour team will have a Show and Tell date once each half-term.

The show and tell must be inexpensive and we cannot take responsibility for the loss or damage of the item. This should be something of your child’s own choice, and could be a favourite toy/book/model, certificate of achievement, photo, something of interest that they have found, etc.

The colour group dates are as follows:


Friday 15th June - Ruby (red) group

Friday 22nd June - Emerald (green) group

Friday 29th June - Amber (yellow) group

Friday 6th July - Sapphire (blue) group



Keep checking back on this page for more updates and to see some of our brilliant work.


Please note that jewellery is not allowed to be worn in school. This includes hoop earrings, bracelets, anklets and necklaces. Only small studs are allowed, although these have to be removed on PE days.
