Ladybirds and Butterflies 2018 - 2019

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

Welcome to our class page.  On here you will find informtion about our topics, themes and special events. The website is updated weekly with blogs and class news, which will include photographs. Over the next two weeks children will be settling into school, some starting for the first time and others adapting to full time. During this time we do not set a theme or topic, instead we use this time to get to know the children and find out their interests so we can plan exciting topics around them.


Forest school will be on a Friday morning, start date to be decided.

Butterflies will be having PE on Tuesday. This term they are taking part in invasion games. 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.

Reading: Please read with your child every night. Sharing a story book contributes to their growing imagination, expressive lanugage and development of understanding of text. Children in Butterflies will begin to bring school reading books home as they progress in phonics.
