Ladybirds and Butterflies 2021 - 2022

Mrs Gardner

Welcome to Ladybirds and Butterflies

Hello my name is Mrs. Gardner and I am the class teacher of children in Nursery and Reception. 

You can contact me via Seesaw or email me (

We have three teaching assistants -  Mrs. Glover, Mrs. Wood and Miss Jones.

This is a mixed age class. Our nursery children are Ladybirds and Reception are Butterflies.

Children of this age follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which involves the following:

  • Learning is through focused play
  • Learning outdoors in own teaching area
  • Forest School every week
  • Positive ethos.

Class News

Welcome to our class page, please have a look through the news, blog and gallery pages to see what the children have been doing. These pages will be updated regularly. 

This term we will be learning how to play and learn together as a class. We will begin to look for signs of Autumn and link our arts and crafts to this colourful season. In RE we will learn all about Harvest. We will also learn all about the different celebrations that happen during this term. 

Please read a story to your child every night and once the Butterfly children are ready they will begin to bring their own school reading books home. To support their reading development they need to be reading every night, little and often is the best approach as children are learning to read. 

PE - will be on a Tuesday afternoon and a Thursday morning. This term we are doing invasion games and dance. The children in Butterflies will need their PE kit to get changed at school. Ladybirds will need to come to school in their trainers.

Forest School this term will be confirmed once the children have settled into school
