Ladybirds and Butterflies 2020 - 2021

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 ClassDojo, Tapestry or email me (

We have two teaching assistants -  Mrs. Glover and Mrs. Wood.

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 new, blog and gallery sessions to see what the children have been doing. These pages will be updated regularly. 

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. This term we are doing Athletics so the children in Butterflies will need their outdoor PE kit. Ladybirds will need to come to school in their trainers.

Forest School - date to start will follow shortly
