Hello and welcome to Ladybirds’ Class page, we are a mixed class of years 2, 3 and 4.
Our Class Teacher is Sue
The other adults to help us in our class are;
Jenny - Teaching assistant
Dayana – Teaching assistant Paige - Teaching assistant
Mid-day meal supervisor is Jade
Our topic this term is ‘Colours,’ which lends itself to some super stories, such as Rainbow Fish, Flamingo or Handa’s Surprise. We have been developing our writing skills with stories, labels, posters and in play. We have also read Jack and the Beanstalk, which linked to our science of ‘Plants.’
In PSHE we have been learning about rules in the classroom and the wider community and consequences of actions. The children have joined in with discussion and very much engaged in role play to act out scenarios. They were very good as police officers! We have planted some seeds in science and are very pleased to report, that our Sunflowers are beginning to grow! The children had opportunities to examine lots of different seeds using the magnifying glass.
Maths will have a focus on number (division, doubling) and fractions. Some children will be learning about time and days of the week and some will have a focus on measure, as in weight.
We are starting our communication groups again this term, where the children have opportunities to go into another class and participate in activities to develop communication skills appropriate to their level of ability and confidence.
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.
