Hello and welcome to Ladybirds’ Class page, we are a mixed class of years 1 and 2.

In Ladybirds class, we try to remember to do good listening and be kind to our friends. Ladybirds are an enthusiastic class who love learning new things supported with visuals and role play opportunities.
In term 6, our overarching theme is ‘The Natural World’ where we will be focusing on the ‘seaside,’ as our main area of learning. The children will learn about the seaside today and from the past. We will be thinking about safety on the beach and setting our role play area up as a seaside café/ice cream parlour. We will also be learning about the seaside’s natural environment, including rock pools and learning the Makaton signs for some of these.
We will be covering exploratory science, through applying experience, participating in activities to develop knowledge and observational skills using scientific equipment.
We will have a high focus on phonics and reading, which will be through multisensory learning.
ICT will be embedded across the curriculum.
We will provide a nurturing environment, where social interaction and skills are promoted, through adults modelling, circle time, feelings visuals and opportunities to talk together. We will also embed PSHE, with planned activities and lots of opportunities to share discussion.
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.
