Welcome to Ladybirds class page,
This half term we are learning all about animals and each week we will focus on different types of animals from zoo animals to pets. Some of our work will include writing riddles for animals, adapting well known stories such as 'Dear Zoo' and 'Farmer Duck', investigating capacity and weight through 'Mr Gumpy' and exploring money through 'The Great Pet Sale'.
During the term we will also be celebrating 'Book Week' and will focus on poetry from 'Rumble in the Jungle'. We have many creative things planned and there will be a chance for parents to see some of our creations during parents evening on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th March. On Friday 8th March we will be creating our very own jungle when we dress up to celebrate National Book Day along with the rest of the school.
Sign up forms for parents evening will be available soon. Please look out for emails from the school office with further information.
Sound folders will continue to be sent home on Fridays and are expected back the following Thursday. The aim of the sound folders is to inform you as parents about the phonics focus for the week and to allow children to consolidate this at home. Please continue to read regularly at home and practise teddy words.
PE days continue to be Tuesdays however we do sometimes do additional PE on other days. Therefore, please ensure that PE kits are in school all week. We also suggest bringing a warmer tracksuit now that it is colder. Most of the PE sessions are indoors but occasionally they will be outside, even in the winter.
It is good to see more of the children are now eating the fruit provided by the school for their midmorning snack. If your child is bringing in their own snack, please ensure that it is either fruit or vegetables. We do have children with severe allergies both within our class and across the school therefore there must be NO NUTS in any of the children’s snacks or packed lunches. Please also see the attached allergy poster for Ladybirds.
Please remember that we are always happy to answer any questions you may have with regards to your child’s school life.
