Hello and welcome to Ladybirds. We are an Explore Curriculum Pathway class with years 1 and 2.

Our Class teacher is Sue.

The other adults to help us in our class are;
Bonnie - Teaching assistant
Lynette – Teaching assistant
Mid-day meal supervisor is Katie.

This term our topic is Festivals and Celebrations and this is an exciting and colourful topic to embrace. We will include learning why we celebrate fireworks, Remembrance Day, Diwali and Christmas. Stories, including myths and legends will support reading and writing. We will also be focusing on the children’s listening and attention skills, as this is a constant skill to be developed. We hope the children will share their own experiences and this will lead to further development of communication skills.


In Ladybirds we like to explore the outside area, which includes the sensory garden for learning activities. This is an opportunity to learn about nature and in particular about the seasons, observing what happens to the leaves on the trees.

Nurture time is throughout the day and this is particularly beneficial for children coming into class in the morning. We foster and encourage social interaction and the children sit together socially for breakfast, lunch and snack time. Adults also model social skills.

Things to remember:

  • Diaries will be written in and given out each day, please send them back in the morning.
  • EHCP target diaries will be written in fortnightly and given out at the end of the week.
  • PE is on Thursday and if possible please remember a PE kit. We do have spare if you forget.
  • Please can you label your child’s name in all clothing. Spare clothing is always a good idea, particularly this time of year when the weather turns cold and wet
  • Please try and encourage your children to leave toys at home, as they do go missing!

If your child has a spare pair of wellington boots to bring in for days, when it is wet or muddy on the playground.
