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 working with us. 

We are all very excited to be welcoming the new children into our school and have exciting things planned!



In ladybirds class we love being able to share our learning with Attendance Ted and On Time Ted. We are working really hard to make sure that we get into school on time everyday so that they can come back with us and enjoy all the fantastic activities we get to do. 


WOW, where is time going?

Summer 2 Information:

This half term we are thinking about the question:


'Will you read me a story?'

This half term we will be looking a different traditional tales. We will be discussing the characters and whether they are bad or good characters? The setting of the book, the problem of the character and how the problem is solved. We will be using actions and story maps to help retell famous traditional tales and then adding in our own ideas. In Maths we will be using beanstalks to order and measure. We will be consolidating our number patterns to 10 and developing our understanding of numbers past 20. We will be looking at counting forwards and backwards from 30, counting in 2's and 10's. 


One of our favourite things in Ladybirds class is our helicopter stories were we get to be the author of our own story and then with our friends act them out on our stage. We will be thinking of introducing story language into our helicopter stories as we act them out.   


This half term is also very special as we will be welcoming the new EYFS children into school through our transition visit. We are very excited to show them what it is like to be a school and all the different activities we get to do.

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.
