Ladybugs weekly P.E session 🐞

This afternoon in Ladybugs we went into the hall to have our P.E session.

We used the big school climbing frame to explore how far we could climb up. We all made it to the top and were so brave while doing it. Well done ladybugs! 🐞

To end the P.E session we all played a parachute game, listening for our names and then running under the parachute to the other side.

What a wonderful day we have had!

Have a lovely weekend everyone,

Ladybugs Base camp πŸžπŸ‚

On Tuesday mornings ladybugs go to either the forest or base camp. This week they went to base camp!

They had such a lovely time exploring the new area, finding sticks, leaves and we even found a worm. Ladybugs even did come climbing! 🐞

We had our snack in base camp too, we had to make sure our hands were nice and clean before we could eat our biscuits and have a drink.

Ladybugs Forest School πŸŒ³πŸƒ

Ladybugs have forest school on a Tuesday morning, this means tomorrow morning ladybugs will be going to enjoy our forest or base camp area. As the weather is changing we ask that you please bring in some spare warm clothes and wellies for your child to wear during these sessions and we will provide a waterproof suit to go over and protect their clothes.

Look out on the website for the photos of our fun in the forest tomorrow πŸŒ³πŸ‚

Letters and Sounds in Ladybugs 🐞

Now all our ladybugs children have settled in we have started on some of our routine activities such as Letters and Sounds.

During these session we focus on attention and listening skills. We plan lots of lovely games, activities and walks to be able to learn about different sounds.

This week we have started to look at the sounds S and A, we have been finding objects which have the initial sound of S or A.

We have also been using our good listening ears to listen for new sounds, we played a game busy things ‘Guess the animal’ the children listen to the noise and then guess which animal it belongs too. πŸ¦πŸ·πŸ’πŸ”

We have also been listening to sounds around our nursery, could you listen for familiar sounds at home? In the garden? On the walk to nursery? πŸ‘‚πŸ»

Ladybugs P.E πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸž

Last week in ladybugs we used the school hall for our P.E session.

We setup little challenges for the children to have ago at.

We had tunnels and tents to see if we could explore the smaller areas to move in different ways, crawling, shuffling, rolling. Are there any small spaces you could explore at home? In the garden? What different ways can you move? πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

We used the bean bags and balls to see which ways we could use them, kicking, throwing and catching. ⚽️🎾
