Welcome to Ladybird class!


It is a privilege for us to support your child in their first steps in their journey of school life here at Farnborough Road Infant School.

We have busy days in the nursery filled with fun, excitement and new experiences.  While your child learns through play we will provide varied experiences which will help them build firm foundations for their future learning.

By promoting independence, curiosity and challenge through our continuous provision (the resources the children have access to daily) we help our children to develop the skills they need to be a successful learner.  We strive to model and encourage good behaviour for learning, develop excellent communication skills with rich vocabulary, and promote active, healthy choices.

We also have some timetabled activities each week which include: 

  • Space for Sport – a big space to exercise!  Activities include:  parachute games, listening games, ball skills
  • Studio Time – a time for music, song and dance.  Activities include: Sticky Kids (songs and dance), Yoga, Bean Bag Disco’s, music time with percussion instruments
  • Motor Magic – a special time each week to develop our gross and fine motor skills which will help us get ready to write
  • Key Worker groups – smaller group activities which have a focus such as maths, phonics or topic based


In the Ladybird class we also love books so we aim to fit in as many story

times as we can too!


Let the busy, happy days begin…
