Happy Half Term from Miss Shadbolt.

Happy half term everyone πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for your continued support over this half term. I hope you all enjoy the break and have lots of lovely things planned. I hope the sun comes out and stays out for us all!

I have sent the children home with homework, that is due back on Thursday 11th June. They have spellings, a half term diary sheet and a times table challenge!

The children have also got a new reading book for the half term, which is due back on Friday 12th June. If your child has not brought a new book home it is because the previous book was not returned. Many of the children have changed level,Β  but please do not be discouraged if your child has remained on the same level – I have kept these children where they are to boost confidence, improve fluency and help with expression.Β  Alongside the Read Write Inc Book Bag Book, I have encouraged the children to take a sharing book from the book corner to share with you at home, this may be too difficult or too easy, but it is an opportunity to promote a love of reading.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on those sunflowers, some of the ones in school are getting quite big now! Looking forward to hearing all about how big they are and how much they have grown.

Have a fantastic break – see you all on Monday 7th June.

Many thanks, Miss Shadbolt πŸ™‚

Reading in Ladybirds

Good morning!

Over the past couple of weeks we have been reassessing the reading levels of the children. We have seen some fantastic progress, so thank you for reading with your child at home, it really does make such a difference.

To make sure the levels are accurate, next week I will not be issuing a book bag book for the children to bring home. I will be reading with the children 1-1 and within the new guided reading groups to make sure and double check the books are suitable for each child and then they can bring a new book home to share with you over half term.

A polite reminder that after half term, the book bag books will be issued on a Monday, need to be read 3x a week and returned on a Friday. They do not need to be brought in every day. We check reading records on a Friday and update the Reading Rocket accordingly. Again, thank you for your support.

Have a lovely weekend!

Forest School for Ladybirds!

Good morning everyone πŸ™‚

Next week we are taking a couple of trips to Forest School! If the weather allow us, we will be going on Monday and Thursday. Can you please make sure that your child has a waterproof coat, long trousers and wellies/old trainers with them on these days. I am happy for you to send them in on Monday and they can leave them in their lockers until Thursday if that makes it easier. Can you please send your child to school in their normal school shoes and then bring their wellies/old trainers in a bag with them, as if they get muddy or too wet we can let them dry outside – thank you for your understanding!

Best wishes, Miss Shadbolt πŸ™‚

Trip to Church for Ladybirds

Good afternoon everyone πŸ™‚ ,

Reverend Rich has very kindly invited us over to the church to enhance our RE learning and therefor, we will be going to St Mary’s church tomorrow, on Tuesday (18th). We have been looking at the Gospels, and the good news that Jesus shared and are looking forward to asking Reverend Rich some more questions and enjoying what he has to share with us.

We will be leaving school just after lunch and will be back in time for usual pick up. Can you please ensure your child has a raincoat with them tomorrow as we will be walking and the good old weather is very unpredictable.

If you would prefer for your child not to attend, please let me know.

Ladybirds are going to Forest School!

Good morning everyone πŸ™‚

Hoping to go down to Forest School on Thursday afternoon to site our bug hotels.

The children will need long trousers and wellies/old trainers but will be fine in their school t-shirt and jumper. A waterproof coat will also be required πŸ™‚ .

The children really enjoyed making the big hotels and are really looking forward to being able to go back down to Forest School for the first time in over a year!

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Best wishes, Miss Shadbolt.




Hello πŸ™‚

Hope you are all okay and have a lovely bank holiday πŸ™‚ !

This week in Ladybird class, we have planted sunflower seeds! This weeks homework is to write a set of instructions on β€˜how to plant a sunflower seed’. Then the following weeks, the children need to draw pictures and record the changes of their plants. They will be bringing home a diary to keep track in their homework folder. Can it please be completed every week and returned on a Thursday. The children were very excited and had lots of fun! I can’t wait to see the changes and watch the flowers grow! Thank you ever so much.

This weeks spellings are in the folder, but they are as follows:

Spoke, Awoke, Tadpole, Telephone, Cube, June, Volume, Crawl, Straw, Jaw, Busy, Clothes, Many, My.


Best wishes,

Miss Shadbolt πŸ™‚

Happy Friday and Happy Easter πŸ™‚

It was impossible to pick only one star of the week this week. All of the children have been amazing, worked super hard and all deserve to be ‘star of the week’. It has not been the easiest term but all of the children have settled back in beautifully and its is a pleasure to be greeted with their happy, smiley faces everyday πŸ™‚ !

Thank you for your continued support this half term, enjoy the break and we will see you all after the holidays!

Many thanks, kind regards and big smiles!
