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

Our Class teacher is Sue

The other adults to help us in our class are;

Jenny - Teaching assistant
Nikki – Teaching assistant
Honor – Teaching assistant

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 5, our overarching theme is ‘The Natural World’ where we will be focusing on animals and insects, as our main area of learning. The children will learn the different groups of animals and their habitats. We will also be looking at insects (hopefully with the magnifying glasses) and what they do to help the environment. We will be making a bug hotel too.

We will still be focusing on developing the skills of active listening and attention to support learning. We will be covering exploratory science, through applying their own experience, participating in activities, to develop knowledge, observational and problem solving skills.

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

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 where relevant across the curriculum. Our focus this term is to promote discussion about emotions and relationships.

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.

Things to remember:
