Reception - Ladybirds

Welcome to Ladybirds!



Autumn Term


We had a very enjoyable half term looking at people who help us, The Enormous Turnip and The Little Red Hen. It was great fun having parents and grandparents in school to share their experiences and baking bread and eating it!

The children are enjoying their phonics and number time sessions. The sounds we have covered so far are - m,a,s,d,t,i,n,p,g,o,c,k,u,b - please keep practising recognising them on sight and finding things beginning with those sounds.

In mathematics we are looking very carefully at the numbers 0-5, by counting carefully, ordering, writing, representing the number/quantity in different ways, looking for patterns, finding as many different ways as possible to take the number apart and put it back together again.

Over the next few weeks we will look at The Gingerbread man, The Owl babies and Percy the Park Keeper to find out more about Autumn, the weather and discuss the meaning of nocturnal and hibernation. We will also be busy rehearsing for our Nativity play which we will share with you in December.






Wow, hasn't time flown by! Where did the summer holidays go?


Mrs White and Mrs Jenkinson are really excited to welcome you to our Ladybird class and would like to thank you for the warm welcome you have shown us during the home visits last week. It was lovely to meet your family and pets and find out about all the lovely things you have been up to over the summer.

We can't believe how quickly you are settling into school  and learning the daily routines, well done everyone.

If you have any worries or questions, no matter how insignificant you think they are,  please do not hesitate to speak to one of us. 

We hope you are looking forward to the term ahead as much as we are.
