Ladybirds

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.

In term 3, our overarching theme is ‘The Imaginary World’ where we will be focusing on ‘Castles’ as our main area of learning. We will be setting up a builder’s yard outside for role play, which will support science, by exploring materials, maths and opportunities for writing.

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.

In science we will be covering exploratory science, through applying their own experience, participating in activities, to develop knowledge, observational and problem solving skills. We will also be learning about animals and their categories.

This is us exploring light and dark in science.

Our learning will include signing of routine words and topic words, alongside spoken word. We will use a multisensory approach to embed learning for the individuals and of course lots of singing.

Play is particularly important to us, as it builds the foundation skills of learning and social development. There will be opportunities to develop their imaginative skills, as a structured play lesson and also in free time, supported and modelled by an adult.

Home learning is now loaded on to Seesaw and has been scheduled throughout the term. You can also upload photos of activities that your child has been doing at home, linked with work or topic.

Things to remember:

  • Each Friday EHCP diaries and contact books will be sent home, please return them on Monday. I will also send them home if I need to share information.
  • If your child has a spare pair of wellington boots to bring in for days, when it is wet or muddy on the playground.
