Ladybirds Class Reception

Welcome to Ladybird Class



Welcome to Ladybird Class! My name is Miss Giannini and I am the Class Teacher. Our lovely Learning Support Assistants are Miss Marriott and Miss Scott! The Ladybird Class have had a fantastic start to the new school year and we are super proud of how well they have settled in!


How we learn...


Children learn through play in Reception, both inside and outside the classroom. We aim to encourage children to explore, experiment, question, take risks, make and learn from mistakes, and grow in confidence. We want the children to have fun and enjoy learning!


All children are supported in developing their potential at their own pace. By means of developmentally appropriate activities and adult support, each child achieves his / her potential. This sense of achievement is very important in a child’s learning: we believe it inspires them to want to learn more!


Reception is a vital time in which our children settle into school and are supported to become happy, confident, independent learners. We promote teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and provide children with the broad range of knowledge and skills that enables them to make good future progress.


The Reception curriculum encompasses seven areas of learning. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.


The three Prime Areas which underpin all learning and skills are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
    The four Specific Areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied are:
