Key information for Parents/Carers of Ladybirds children
Please label all children’s clothes, including shoes and coats.
School lunches are nutritious and appetising. You child is entitled to free school meals, up until they are in year 2.
Packed lunches should have names on the lunch box.
Children should come into school dressed for P.E. The correct P.E. uniform should be worn. No football kits. Also, when the weather is cooler they will need to wear jogging bottoms and their school jumper/cardigan over the t shirt.
Library day is Wednesday. Please ensure your child brings in the previous weeks book, in their library bag. We take great pride and pleasure in our library sessions and use this opportunity to develop children’s love for reading. We hope they enjoy their books at home with you.
Every day we have a phonic session. Once children know all the initial phonemes, we then practise sounding out and blending simple words. When children can do this, they receive their first reading book. This is a real celebratory event in their lives, which we very much work hard for and look forward to.
We work hard to develop independence in every child. Please provide opportunities for them at home to put on and take off their jumpers, coats, shoes etc. It does take time, but it’s such a big achievement when children can do a lot for themselves and they gain a great sense of pride when we notice it and praise them for it.
Friday is the day our whole school celebrate achievement. Every week a child is given a merit badge to wear. This is given for many reasons, for example; good behaviour, beautiful manners, good work. Also, a maths wizard and a super speller award is given. These are given out on alternative weeks.
The gate for Ladybirds opens at 8.45.The register is taken at 9 o clock prompt. Please ensure you child is in school on time, so we can settle them for registration and their first task of the day.
