Ladybirds and Butterflies 2017 - 2018

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. 

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
  • Small class setting - approximately 24
  • Forest School every week
  • Positive ethos.

Class News

This term we have lots of exciting events happening. We will be making our outdoor area into a Mosque as children learn about the differences between their own faith and others. We will be following the World Cup Football and taking a closer look at the different countries in the World Cup. The children have chosen our main topic to be pirates, Mrs Glover has been busy with the children turing our indoor role play into a pirate ship! We will be making maps, writing messages in a bottle and as always enjoying lots of stories around our topic. 

Forest school is on a Friday morning. 

To keep up to date check out our lastest blogs and class news pages.


Butterflies have PE on a Tuesday and this term they are taking part in throwing and catching and will need outdoor PE kit. Please ensure they have the correct PE kit of white t-shirt, red shorts, grey or red tracksuit and black pumps.


Ladybirds and Butterflies will have homework shared via Tapestry or their home school learning books.

Reading: Please read and practise keywords with your child every night. Books will be changed every Monday and Thursday.
