Hello and welcome to the Ladybird Class 2018-2019. Come and have a look at our fantastic learning!
Term 1 - It's All About Me. In our first term we will be settling into school life and learning lots of important things about ourselves and our new friends.
Term 2 - Romp, Stomp, Roar! Our topic this term is all about dinosaurs!
Weeks beginning 29.10.18 and 5.11.18.
We have been busy counting and ordering our numbers. We have also been matching amounts to given numbers and we have also been ordering objects in terms of smallest to largest.
Weeks beginning 12.11.18 and 19.11.18.
We have been learning to add two single digit numbers together this week. We have been using lots of objects around our classroom to help us and then writing the correct number sentence.
Week beginning 26.11.18
This week we have been learning about position and direction. We have been putting the dinosaurs around our classroom and then using positional language to describe where they are. We have also been learning about symmetry and making patterns that are the same on both sides.
Weeks Beginning 3.12.18 and 10.12.18
Term 3 - People Who Help Us.
This term we will be learning about different people who help us and their roles. We will be learning about the important jobs they do, uniforms they wear and how they help us.
Weeks beginning 14.1.19 and 21.1.19
We have been learning about finger prints the police take if they are trying to solve a crime. We took our own finger prints and learnt how everyone's is different. We have also been practising blending and segmenting our sounds as well as matching up pictures with words. We have also been putting these words into sentences along with our tricky words.
We had a special visit from a police officer who came to our class to speak to us about his important job. He told us about how he helps people and we were allowed to try on his uniform and different hats the police wear.
We have been learning about the season of Winter and changes that are happening in our environment at this time of year. We did an experiment with ice and tried to think of ways we could melt it to free the frozen hands. We then experimented with paints to see if we could paint the ice cubes and hands.
We have learnt about money and the different coins we use to pay for items in a shop. We have been sorting out the money in our classroom and setting up our own shop to buy things.
We have been experimenting to find out if objects float or sink. We made a list of objects we wanted to test and then put them in water to see what would happen.
We have also been measuring things around our classroom with rulers and measuring tapes. We have been learning how to use them to find out how long something is.
