I am looking forward to meeting you all in September for your first year of 'big' school! We are going to have so much fun this year with lots of lovely learning. When you come to school, each term we will introduce you to a new project focusing on different areas, for example we have a project on fairy tales, pirates and minibeasts!


Our first project is called 'Getting to Know You' where we will play lots of games to get to know our classmates, become familiar with the classroom and explore the school grounds. We ask if you can participate in our home learning project over the summer holidays, you can find more information under the 'Home learning' tab, also it has been sent to you with your class letter.

We are Ladybird Class


Please have a look at our classroom tour and a welcome video to meet myself and listening to a favourite story I have read for you.



Other important information about school:




Each week, we do P.E on a Wednesday morning (Work Out Wednesdays). This term we will be getting to know the hall and learning about spacial awareness. Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their P.E kit.


On a Monday, we will have a shorter P.E session in school uniform. Please send your child into school with appropriate footwear.





Our reading session is on a Tuesday and we hand in our reading diaries on a Monday morning. We will be learning the Oxford Reading Tree (ORT) character names and recognition of them.




Each Friday, we are allowed to borrow a book from the library. Please make sure your child puts their library book in their book bag every Friday morning so they can choose a new one!


What you need


Please make sure you bring your water bottle (please carry separately) and book bag to school each day.


If you ever have any questions then please do come and ask, we are always happy to help!
