Welcome to Ladybirds!
A warm welcome to a our class page. The adults in the class are as follows:

Miss Gaskin – Class Teacher
Mrs Smith - Teaching Assistant (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)
Mrs Harrington – Teaching Assistant (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)

The children in Ladybirds are encouraged to learn through play and exploration, through being active, creative and thinking critically. The staff aim for the children to be inspired by their experiences; motivated by stimulating environments and equipment; fully engaged in their learning and, ultimately, to be empowered to continue to explore and learn themselves, independently. This is managed through carefully planned lessons and activities and opportunities for adult-led and adult- directed sessions as well as amble opportunity for child-initiated learning.

PE Day - Friday 
Children have PE with Mr Tanner on a Friday. Please come to school wearing your PE kit.

Once Upon A Time - Summer 1
We found a castle in our classroom after the holidays! We decided it needed a beanstalk so got to work creating one! 
We are looking forward to learning lots of different fairytales over the next few weeks!
