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.
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!
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.
Children in Need ramble
It was a beautiful day for a walk on the heathland.
We looked at all the autumnal colours and splashed in the puddles!
Look at all our lovely art work!
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.
We have enjoyed our first few weeks at school and have been busy learning about all the new routines and expectations.
During the start of the term we have been exploring different ways to learn indoors and outdoors.
