Welcome to Ladybirds! We are a class of 13. Mrs Eaton is the class teacher and Stuart, Becky and Robyn are our lovely teaching assistants. Kirsty teaches us on a Friday. Ladybirds have P.E on a Monday morning. Please send the children already dressed in their P.E kits for this. Ladybirds follow the Seedlings pathway.
Welcome to Autumn 2. This half-term our topic is 'A Victorian Christmas'. We will be exploring events from the past based around 'A Victorian Christmas'. We will be creating Victorian-themed items to sell at our Christmas Fair.
Ladybirds will be looking at how Victorian's lived and use our own experiences to compare. Our topic book that we will be sharing is 'Pip and Posy The Christmas Tree'.
Ladybirds will also have a tennis instructor supporting us to build our physical skills on a Monday morning, which is very exciting. On a Friday we will also be taking part in forest school, so please send your child in old clothing and wellies.
During the first 2 weeks we spent our time getting to know each other and our new environment and making new friends and relationships. Our topic was 'Painters'. We read the story 'Beautiful Oops' which is all about looking and exploring art and materials in our environment.
Look at all the lovely things we have experienced so far in the Autumn Term...
Proud to be me week
Ladybirds have enjoyed settling into school and the new experiences that come with this.
We enjoyed our first Jo Jingles session and soft play, and we were also visited by a harpist who played us classical and Disney music!
Read Write Inc (RWI)
In Ladybirds this is how we teach letters and sounds through our Read, Write Inc program.
Please take a look at some of the handy parent RWI videos on YouTube:
Parent video-What is Read Write Inc?
Parent video-How to say the sounds:
The first set of sounds we teach/expose the children too are: m a s d t. These are called our speed sounds.
Once we recognise these sounds, we develop our Word Time and blend these sounds together to read words mad, sad, sat, at.
How to blend:
It is important to remember that all children learn at different rates. Some children work in a small RWI group developing their letter and sound understanding whilst some are exposed to the letter sounds through their daily Attention Autism lesson.
