Ladybirds Curriculum Overview 2023-2024

Autumn Term

Autumn 1

Our first topic is 'Super duper you, Super duper me' and we are very excited about it.  At the moment we are all settling into school life; learning our new routines and rules. We have all created a self-portrait which is on display to help us get to know everyone in our class. We are beginning to explore who is in our family and where we live.

We now have two guinea pigs that have joined our class, Cinnamon and Crumpet. The children have shown great responsibility in caring for them; helping to feed them and clean out their hutch. 


We really enjoyed a Nature Day in our local area. We took part in a quiz to identify trees, went on a minibeast hunt and looked at artefacts. Take a look at what we got up to.

 The PTA have supported us in funding a transformation in our garden, we now have an outdoor classroom to help with our learning in all weathers and a play tower to support and develop our gross motor skills, imagination and social interactions. We had a fantastic team from Playwood install these items and the children very much enjoyed being a part of the process.

In in this very short half term we will be learning about Space and Dinosaurs. The children have already been on an imaginary journey into Space to learn about all of the planets in the solar system and they have walked in the boots of Neil Armstrong to step on the moon. 

As part of our Dinosaurs topic we will become investigators to solve mysteries and enjoy learning facts about different dinosaurs and periods in history.
