Welcome to Ladybirds!
This is ladybird's class page and here you will find lots of exciting information about our class.
Hello, my name is Miss Oxendale and I am the class teacher. We also have Miss Ward and Mrs Mahoney working with us.
We are all very excited to be welcoming the new children into our school and have exciting things planned!
Autumn 2 Information:
This half term we are thinking about the question:
'Why do squirrels hide their nuts?'
We will be exploring and looking at the changes outside as we have go into the season of Autumn. We will be visiting Witton Park to observe these changes and will be collecting lots of Autumnal objects to use them in different activities in class. We will continue to make new friends from our class and other EYFS classes.
In Literacy we will be spending our time looking at different animals who hibernate in Autumn and stories related to our current season. We will be continuing to develop both our fine motor and gross motor skills through lots of different activities. We will be working on recognising different sounds we have learnt in phonics and using these sounds to help us read simple words. In Maths we will be spending lots of time on counting and recognising our numbers from 1 to 10 with confidence. We will be visiting ‘Ten Town’ to learn our numbers from 11 to 20 and the value of numbers.
How you can help at home :)
Read with your child every night, talk through and discuss the story and characters.
Counting regularly with your child, both forwards and backwards.
Ask your child about their day, we do lots of different activities throughout the day and they will love to share these with you.
Ensure your child's book bag is in school everyday.
Complete the homework given out on a Friday with them, this reflects the learning throughout the week.
Now that your child has been given a book bag, please ensure that they bring this in every day. Also make sure that you check these bags every night for any messages or letters that might have been given out.
Please can you make sure that you label all of your child’s clothes, this includes all parts of their uniform, PE kits, coats and shoes, as this helps us to find the owner of the item much faster!!
You will receive newsletters and information from school regularly, however, if you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to me.
