Ladybird Class


In reception we do response planning on a weekly basis meaning our activities are based on the previous weeks assessment.

In Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 (Reception to Year 2) our reading scheme is the Oxford Reading Tree from Oxford University Press, supplemented with the “Floppy’s Phonics” scheme.

  • Fantastic Fridays in FS2

    Fantastic Fridays have started in FS2! 2 Ladybirds and 2 Bumblebees are picked to become the teachers every Friday.
