Ladybird Class

Welcome to our Ladybird Class page



Our EYFS and Year 1 children are based in our Ladybird Class.

We welcome Miss Harvey to our school as the Ladybird's class teacher and our teaching assistant Miss Tolman.  


We are fortunate to have our Pre-School on site to support children’s transition into school and continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Our Year 1 children then continue in a familiar environment to transfer to working in Year 1 using the Primary National Curriculum.  


Our partnership with parents and carers is of huge importance. Teachers are available to speak to parents via our MarvellousMe web-based communication – we love using this platform to share news and photographs of your child’s learning in school. 


We welcome new children to our school – please contact the school office to arrange a tour of the school and an opportunity to speak to our staff. 


If your child will be starting school in September 2022 then please don't hesitate to contact the school office for further information.

Home Learning in Ladybird Class 


The most important part is to read with your child and help them to learn their phonic sounds. 

Every night: 


  • Enjoy a bedtime story – this could be a library book, a book from your own collection at home.
  • Practice the key words –  practise reading the key words and tricky words sent home
  • Read your child’s school book with them – this is changed by us in school. There will be opportunities for this on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please write in their reading record. 

We will also send out tasks to support your child at home on a Thursday to be collected the following Tuesday.

In addition to this there will also be home learning projects set at the beginning of each topic which can be completed over several weeks. You do not need to do all the activities on the grid 3 or 4 of them would be great. We will collect the projects in before the end of the half term and share them on the class page. 


If you have any concerns about your child’s home learning then please speak to Miss Harvey. 


Class Bears

In Ladybird Class we are lucky enough to Colin and Connie as our class bears. They will take it in turns to go home with the children on a Monday and return on a Friday so they can rest over the weekend. Please take photos of anything your child does with them and send them to Miss Harvey via the class email address. These photos will be shared in class and will give your child a chance to talk about what they did together.
