The Grange Community Infant School

I play, I learn, I belong




 Welcome to Ladybird Class

We have been very busy in our first month of school. In literacy we have been story tellers using wordless books and then using our phonic knowledge to label a picture from the book 'Monkey Puzzle'. Next we are using the story 'The Tiger who Came to Tea' and writing a shopping list in case a tiger ever comes to tea with us. 


In maths we have become number experts for the number 0-5. Next we are learning to sort objects into two groups. 


We have been learning more about different kinds of weather and have made a class weather chart. We are working on our fine motor skills by completing weekly funky finger challenges. They have included finger football, pegging up cloths on a washing line, using lots of different types of hole punchers and posting money into a money box. 


In PE we have been working on our balance and learning how to use the different equipment safely. 


We have had a new member of Ladybird Class join us. His name is Benji Bear. He is our class mascot and will be going home with one of us each weekend. He has started off at Ethan's house. 


We have started going to assemblies. We have done our first Singing Assembly on Thursdays and Celebration Assembly on Friday. At Friday assembly Sumayya received a Star Award and Loresa shared her Gym certificate from home.
