Ladybird Class

Welcome to Ladybird Class with Mrs Davies and Mrs Everett

Ladybird class is a year one class.

Our teacher is called Mrs Davies and we have Mrs Everett who also works with us four mornings a week.

Our topics for the year are:

Autumn term: What makes Britain Great?

Spring term: What’s up there?

Summer term: Is water everywhere?

This term we have been reading 'The Queen’s Handbag' by Steve Antony. We have labelled the sneaky swan using adjectives and have been finding out about the places the Queen chases the swan during our Great Britain topic. We have also imagined what would happen if the Queen visited our school and she chased the swan around Maylandsea School!

We are also reading Katie Morag stories by Mairi Hedderwick which are set on a Scottish island.

Next half term we will be reading non-fiction books about castles and books about princess and even a story about Paddington Bear meeting the Queen.



Homework is obviously the best way for you to support your child at school. Reading with them regularly, asking comprehension questions and helping with spellings are essential.  Please make sure they read with you at least 3 times a week.

They will have weekly spellings, connected to their Letters and Sounds phase, which will be given out half termly in the back of their homework books. They will also receive a ‘look, say, cover, write, check’ sheet, in their homework book every week. 

At the front of their book they will have challenges to choose from for their other homework. If they wish to do more Maths they can use My Maths or practise their number formation; writing numbers in words; number bonds; counting in 2’s 5’s, 10’s and 3’s.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned on a Wednesday. Children will be rewarded for good homework by gaining DoJo’s and team points.
