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

Our Class teacher is Sue.

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

Our topic this term is ‘Me and My Family’ and later in the term it will be ‘Transport.’ We hope to find out more about each other, including likes and dislikes. Vocabulary will have a high focus and be supported with Makaton where relevant. Both topics will be supported with stories, to make links to experiences and to learn new facts.

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.

Communication is pivotal and we will be focusing on developing the skills of active listening and attention. We will also be promoting it through class discussion; this might be topic, circle time or just sharing some news.

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.
  • 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.
