Ladybird

Welcome to Ladybird Class!

 

Mrs Hurst and Mrs Gregory are the Class Teachers.

Mrs Allaway and Mrs Hedger are the Learning Support Assistants.

Our P.E. day is Friday.

 

Our library day is Thursday.

Miller's Ark come to visit!!

We were so lucky to have the mobile farm come and visit us at school, even if it was a rainy day!

Farmer Chris told us all about the animals including their names, what they like to eat and do and interesting facts about each different animal he brought.

We found out that the pigs like to eat custard doughnuts!!

We were allowed in to the pens to touch and stroke the animals and Farmer Chris handled the birds so that we could feel their feathers.

Everybody had a great time and some of us managed to find our courage by the end of the session to stroke some of the animals -well done Ladybirds!

We started our new topic this term by thinking about pets.

Some of us have brought photos of our pets into school and shared lots of information about them by talking in front of the whole class. Some of us don't have pets but we have brought in pictures of the pet that we would like to have.

One of the activities we chose to do as part of our learning was making clay pets.

Using a ball of clay we rolled, shaped, moulded, pinched and marked the clay to achieve the desired effect. Once they have dried we shall paint them.

Outdoor learning

The first week back after the half term break gave us some lovely weather!

We have enjoyed a variety of learning activities outside including hunting for treasure, creative construction including tricky marble runs, Duplo models and large scale toy making and programming robots to move around mazes.

Our new term has got off to an exciting start with a birthday cake to eat from Floppy the dog and an invitation from Kipper the dog to plan and have a birthday party for him!

 

We have been busy practising lots of skills so far - controlling a variety of balls and equipment through and around obstacles; writing letters and numbers in different ways; strengthening our finger muscles with fine motor activities; reading activities to help us practise our phonics; thinking about a balanced diet; being creative with different construction toys and being imaginative in our birthday party role play!

Christmas!

We have been busy getting ready for the festive period.

We have performed a retelling of the Christmas story at the church; made lots of lovely crafts with our adults; had a Christmas party with dancing and games; wore our Christmas jumpers for traditional lunch as well as doing lots of fun learning about this time of the year!

Here are a selection of photos.

Happy Christmas Ladybirds!

A shared activity with Year 5 from Velmead Junior School

 

Today we worked with the Year 5 children from Velmead in the library. We chose a story for them to read to us and they brought a book from the Hampshire Picture Book Award to share.

It was lovely to have stories read to us.

Dance Day

This week we watched a clip from the musical 'Singin' in the Rain' and then learnt our own dance to go with the music. It was lots of fun!

We splashed in the puddles, twirled our umbrellas, swayed and improvised to the music and then performed to Butterfly Class.

During the last month we have been observing the seasonal changes in our immediate environment. We have looked at and discussed the weather and watched for signs that Autumn has arrived.

This week we visited the heathland to explore this environment and look for any different signs of change.
