Ladybirds Latest News

We welcomed seven new Ladybirds in September. There are now eleven lovely Ladybirds! We have all really enjoyed getting to know the new Ladybirds and it has been wonderful to see how well they have settled in. This half-term we have been busy exploring our topics 'Amazing Autumn' and 'Magical Me'. 

We have spent as much time as possible outside and we are so very lucky that we have such a great outdoor environment in which to play and investigate. The Ladybirds have worked hard in our garden and have enjoyed planting bulbs ready for the spring, using our wonderful Percy the Park Keeper hut as a base. Indoors the Ladybirds have enjoyed playing in our doctors' surgery and exploring our fantastic indoor classroom.

The Ladybirds had great fun picking blackberries from our school field, which we used to make apple and blackberry crumble, which was delicious! We are cooking 'through the alphabet' and have also made bread rolls, cracker faces, golden granola and 'hedgehog' biscuits. We hope you are enjoying the food we bring home with us! 

The Ladybirds particularly enjoyed mixing and then finding autumn colours. They collected conkers, acorns and autumn-coloured leaves and really liked making and then flying spinners which replicated the tree 'spinners' they found outside.

You might have noticed the hedgehogs which the Ladybirds made in many ways, using a variety of materials and demonstrating many different skills - they look wonderful!  We have also produced an 'Owl Babies' display and our 'SATPIN' letter displays are dotted around the classroom, all looking amazing!

We loved participating in School Fitness Week with the Caterpillars, Butterflies and Dragonflies (and our teachers too!) 

We have really enjoyed learning some French.
