Welcome to Ladybird Class!

We are so excited to begin your Holy Trinity journey. Partnerships with parents and carers is a vital aspect in supporting your child to reach their full potential. The class website is a great way to keep informed of exciting developments and events in Ladybird Class and key information that you need to be made aware of.

Your child's home school diary is a form of general communication where we welcome and encourage you to share positive messages about listening to your child read or any other brief information or exciting stories you would like to share with us. Your child's tapestry account will keep you updated on your child's progress during their time in Ladybird Class. We will particularly focus on uploading specific 'WOW' moments for you to reflect upon with your child and we will outline why it was such a significant moment in your individual child's progress!

If you have important information that will impact your child's day at school we ask that you inform the office or email Mrs Lewis the evening before. We will check your child's communication book as often as we can, with this in mind please do feel free to email or handover a note on the gate.

A few key pieces of information.......

Reading

Already Ladybird Class are on the road to developing a lifelong love of books and developing their reading skills. You play a vital role in helping your child learn to read and we know you are keen to get the best start for your child. Very soon your child will bring home a reading book to share with you please try to read with your child each day. We will change class books weekly, will be holding a meeting for parents about early reading and phonics, date and time to follow.

PE
Our PE day will be Friday. Our first PE session will take place on Friday 16th September. PE kit consists of a royal blue sports top (order and pay online via scopay), royal blue / black shorts and trainers or plimsolls, please provide socks if your child wears tights to school. As the weather gets colder your children will need a plain black or navy tracksuit. Please ensure hair is tied back and earrings are removed before school on a Friday.

Library

We are lucky enough to have a wonderful school library where your children will be able to borrow books to bring home and share with you. Mrs Wriggle - Brookes Will take your children to the library to share a story after a couple of weeks the children will begin to bring books home. The children will need to bring their library book to school every Monday so it can be changed.
