The Ladybird Project
The Ladybird Project is a long standing project within school led by Play Therapist Di Hoyer to help support the children at Fortuna with their social, emotional and behavioural needs.
The sessions use story telling, group discussion and practical activities to help children reflect on different behaviours, form an understanding of how behaviours may present themselves in different ways and encourage pupils to develop appropriate strategies to help express thoughts and feelings.
Every class within school take part in a fortnightly Ladybird session led by Di and then do a follow up activity planned by Di with their class teacher the following week.
We consider the Ladybird Project to be an important part of the work we do to support children's SEMH needs at Fortuna. We have therefore created online resources that can be accessed by children learning from home that compliment some of the work they have previously done in school.
