Hello to all our Ladybird families. Another super busy week! Take a look at what we got up to last week in Ladybird Class...

Week beginning 10th October 2022

We are certainly whizzing through this term and once again we have had a busy week. A big thank you to all our parents and carers who came to our phonic workshop last week. If you were unable to attend or have yet to sign up, we have a workshop this Thursday too- 13th October. Simply add your name to the list via the 'school money' link. It would be great to see you there. Take a look at some of our learning from last week...

Here's a game you can play to help you with our maths words of more and fewer. It is the 'Mucky Monsters' game from Click on the link below to play the game. Remember to have a grown-up with you when you are on the internet.

Week beginning 3rd October 2022

Hello again Ladybird families. Last week was another busy week of learning in Ladybird Class. It was so lovely to see so many of you join us at our Harvest Festival on Thursday - we hope you enjoyed our performance of The Dingle Dangle Scarecrow. 

Here is a taste of what we got up to last week...

Don't forget that this Thursday is the first of our phonics workshops for parents/ carers. Please sign up via School Money. It will be a great opportunity for you to find out how we teach phonics and reading at All Souls' as well as find out how you can support at home through games and activities and the Bug Club resources. See you there!

Please find this week's home learning challenge by clicking on the 'Home Learning' link on the right-hand menu.

Don't forget to sign up to come along to one of our very informal phonic workshops to find out the new way phonics and reading is taught at All Souls' and how you can support your child at home to become an independent and confident reader. You can sign up via 'School Money'. I am looking forward to seeing you there.

Week beginning 26th September 2022

We began our full days at school last week. It was certainly a busy week and there were a few tired Ladybirds by the end of the day on Friday! Take a look at what we got up to...

This week we began exploring our theme, "Why do leaves go crispy?" We looked at the shape and colour of leaves that had been collected and used magnifying glasses to see the veins. Some of us tried out a little leaf rubbing to really see the patterns the veins make. 

We all tried really well with our counting but some of us are finding saying our number names, or counting each object just once, a little challenging. Why not try out some games below (from the Topmarks site) to practise your counting skills at home. Simply click on the pictures. Remember: when using the Internet, always have a grown-up with you.

Please do sign up to attend one of our Reading and Phonic workshops, taking place on Thursday 6th and Thursday 13th October, via School Money. These informal sessions will provide you with up-to-date information about how reading and phonics are taught at All Souls' as well as giving you lots of great ideas to try out at home to support your child. I will also introduce you to 'Bug Club' and how to use the online resources available to you. I look forward to seeing you there. If you have any problems signing up do let me know:

Over the past few weeks, we have been busy settling in to our new class. We have been getting to know new friends, trying out new activities and learning new routines. We are team Ladybirds!

Take a look at what we have been up to...



Week beginning Monday 5th September 2022

A big 'Welcome!' to all our new Ladybirds and their families. We hope you had a lovely Summer and are feeling excited about beginning your learning adventures at All Souls'.

Parents/ carers: At the end of each week, I will post photo's and information about all the wonderful things we have been up to in class so do remember to visit our class web page regularly! The links on the menu at the right-hand side of this page are also worth exploring as they provide a lot of information about our curriculum, home learning activities and ideas for supporting your child in maths, reading and phonics as well as any class newsletters. Do take a browse! If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to let me know - you can telephone or email the office: 

or you can send a message directly to myself:

Looking forward to a fantastic year working with you all.
