Great BerryPrimary Academy

A caring place to Learn and Grow


Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!


We are so impressed with how well the children have settled and how successful their first term was at Great Berry. They are coming into school so nicely in the mornings and we love seeing their smiley faces and how grown up they look in their new uniforms. They are picking up the rules well and keep making us proud with their beautiful sitting and listening. 


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

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.

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 12th January – Ruby (red) group

Friday 19th January – Emerald (green) group

Friday 26th January – Amber (yellow) group

Thursday 1st February – Sapphire (blue) group


Friday 2nd March - Ruby (red) group

Friday 9th March - Emerald (green) group

Friday 16th March - Amber (yellow) group

Friday 23rd March - Sapphire (blue) group

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.
