Ladybirds (Reception AS)

Ladybirds class page,

Welcome back to the Spring term!

This term our topic is called Animal Kingdom! We are looking forward to finding out about lots of different animals. What they look like, what they sound like, how they move and lots more. Is there anything you would like to find out about animals?   

We will also be exploring how animals move and how we move to develop our Physical skills. In Maths we will be learning how to double and halve, and continue learning about how to add and subtract 1 digit numbers. What can you count at home? Can you count backwards? In phonics we will continue to enjoy learning new sounds and segmenting and blending words as we all grow in skill and confidence. We will be working on Phase 3 phonics this term which includes lots of digraphs! (See below - Warfield Sound Mat)

PE lessons will continue to be on a Thursday, 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 our PE sessions are indoors but occasionally they will be outside, even in the winter.

It is great to see many of the children eating the fruit provided by the school for their mid-morning 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 provide water in your child's water bottle. 

Please remember that we are always happy to answer any questions you may have with regards to your child’s school life. 

We are happy to welcome Mrs Tustin to Ladybirds Class this term and we hope you enjoy getting to know your new teacher. 

Miss Newling, Miss Moverley and Mrs Tustin
