Sadly, it is not possible to welcome next year's Reception class to come and play at Ladbrooke this term, so instead we have put together this tour of the setting to give you an idea of what to look forward to in the Autumn Term.  Please click here for a copy of the transition booklet




Home Learning 6th - 10th July

Health and Fitness Week 2020

This week is our annual health and fitness week and would normally include a range of activities, culminating in Sports Day. Miss Webster has devised a home learning version for you to enjoy. There is usually a lot of competition between the school houses, and this year will be no different as you are invited to send in your scores for us to collate.

Click here for a list of suggested activities for the week, plus details of how to take part in the 'Sock Olympics'.

Good luck!







F2 Visit the Library

Foundation 2 took an autumnal walk through the park to our local library. We were greeted by two of the staff and invited to gather in the children's section. The staff read stories and sang songs with the children and then gave them time to explore the books by themselves. The children were keen to delve into the shelves and select some books to look at. Each child was given a book called The Cave to keep. F2 thoroughly enjoyed the visit and many were keen to visit the library again with their parents.

Our new Reception children are settling into school life well. We have seen them making new friends, exploring the learning environment and developing independence.

Following the opening of our outdoor story telling area, the children have been sharing one of their favourite stories.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we shall begin...

This term we have been exploring storytelling as a way of developing communication and language skills. Telling and listening to stories helps with many aspects of this vital area of learning: for example, improving listening and attention skills; widening vocabulary; and learning the correct way to structure sentences. The ultimate aim is for children to become effective, creative writers themselves and they have begun this journey by mapping their own versions of well-known tales. Here are some of the stories that they created when we explored the nursery rhyme Jack and Jill.
