The Ladybirds Class
Here is what we will be doing in our different subjects:
Our shared class storybooks will be 'The Toy’s Party', ‘The Wobbly Tooth', 'Funny Bones' and ‘From Head to Toe’. We will also have other books in our Reading Corner to look at and engage with about our five senses and emotions. We will use many different resources to bring the stories alive such as puppets and the actual food in The Toy’s Party. We will be encouraged to join in with the stories in our own way – remembering what has happened or is going to happen, discussing and naming what is happening in the pictures. We will also be working on our fine motor control and mark making as well as our Individual Education Plan English Targets.
We will be continuing to develop our maths skills through a combination of our Individual Education Plan targets for Maths, small group work and exploration of maths resources.
Our overall focus this half term is measurement – length and mass.
theme afternoon this half term is Ourselves. It is based around the History topic ‘The Passage of Time – Me’ and ‘Toys and Games - Mine, My Parents and Grandparents’. Theme will also incorporate art and design. We will be looking at how we have grown and changed over the years and will be looking at pictures of what we looked like as babies. We will also be looking at toys and how they have changed. Maybe making our toys!
We love swimming in Ladybirds so we will keeping trying to improve our independence and kicking skills in the water. During our PE sessions, we will continue to work on our coordination and balance, jumping and throwing and catching.
We will also be incorporating our Ourselves topic and will be exploring and using our senses, looking at features of the human face and parts of the body as well as different ways we can move our bodies. We will also start to look at the differences between animals and humans.
We will be learning about developing a healthy and safer lifestyle. We will be learning and developing our self-help skills such washing, teeth cleaning and toilet routines.
