Great BerryPrimary Academy

A caring place to Learn and Grow


Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!


We hope you all had a lovely Summer holiday and can't wait to work with you all for the children's first year at Great Berry.

We are so impressed with how well the children are settling into their new school. They all look so grown up in their Great Berry uniform and we love seeing their smiley faces every morning. 

The children are making us so proud with their beautiful sitting, and how quickly they are picking up the new rules and routines. 

We are really excited for the children to stay for lunch on Thursday 20th September and stay for their first full-time day on Friday 21st.


This half-term our topics will include Ourselves and Family, People Who Help Us and Autumn. 

Every week we will upload a Weekly Overview, which will give you an insight into some of the activities we will be doing in school that week. 


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 28th Spetmeber - Ruby (red) group

Friday 5th October - Emerald (green) group

Friday 12th October - Amber (yellow) group

Friday 19th October - 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.
