Ladybird  class include children whose ages range from Reception to Year 2 . All the children follow an adapted Early Years curriculum and the philosophy of a cross-curricular learning through play approach. Alongside this, the children learn key skills through 1:1 structured activities. The complex needs of the children in Ladybird class requires a more structured learning approach.

Within this structured approach, each day consists of fun, practical, sensory related activities that promote a love of learning while increasing the children’s independence, confidence, self-esteem, social interaction and communication skills.  Learning takes place both in the classroom and outdoors.

There is a mix of adult led and child initiated activities. Staff support the children to acquire an understanding of the world around them so that they can begin to develop their imagination, investigation and problem solving skills and establish their role within class, the school, family and local community.
