Last week, we had our mini Ladybirds council and the older children were able to tell us what they liked about Ladybirds and what role play ideas they would like to see. The 'minutes' will be sent out soon for each day!

Just a reminder that we are on our half term holiday next week from Monday 13thFebruary until Friday 17th February. We return to Ladybirds on Monday 20th February. We hope you all have a great time.

During March, we would like to show you our play dough disco time (week beginning 6thMarch) and also invite Mums (or a family member) into Ladybirds for the annual tea party (week beginning 20th March). Invites will be coming out nearer the time to remind you all!

It has come to our attention that parents are still parking on the zigzag lines, on the pavements and also in the lay-by when the cones are out. School have placed signs out to remind us all about the safety of our little ones. PLEASE park in a safe place. We have noticed that the traffic wardens have also been giving tickets, so watch out! We understand that there are limited parking spaces, so if you can walk to school or park in town and walk the extra bit, then please do.  

Have a great half term holiday.

Please make sure that your child comes in a warm coat, hat and gloves. We are going outside, even in the fog and cold, so we need them to be warm and cosy!
