My name is Mrs Shaw and I am the teacher in Ladybirds class! I can't wait to meet you all on our very first visit days together. We have lots of fun in Ladybirds Class. We spend our days learning in the classroom and in our exciting outdoor area so don't forget to bring a nice warm coat with you as the weather begins to get colder!
We also have Mrs Gillibrand helping us with our learning and she is really excited to meet you all too.
Our learning this term will be mostly based on settling into your new school and getting to know your new class teachers. Our topic will be 'Do you want to be friends?'.
We will have two daily Phonics and Maths lessons which will begin to cover the single letter sounds and basic number skills to establish where the children are at currently in these unprecedented times before moving them forward with their learning. We will learn how to use tales tool kit and helicopter stories to retell stories we know and also to create out own interesting ideas!
We will also be learning lots of new creative skills and building impressive creations in the construction areas. On Tuesday mornings we will be learning outside with 'Hedgehog' in the forest school who has lots of exciting activities planned for you!
I know some of you will be feeling a little nervous and that's ok! But, I promise you will have a fantastic time being a Ladybird :)
The Ladybirds class will have PE lessons every Thursday so please make sure they have a suitable kit in school. Our school PE kit is a white T-Shirt, blue or black shirts and pumps.
As the term continues children will be given a blue school bag and a reading book. Please make sure you read with your child every night and sign their home reading record.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me on the playground door as you drop your child off or pick them up.
