Welcome to Butterfly Class
Welcome to Butterfly Class. We are Reception children (4-5 years) and we are in a ‘pod’ with Bumblebee and Caterpillar class. There are 17 children in our class and our teacher is Mrs Wheatley. She is supported by Mrs McCabe our higher level teaching assistant and teaching assistant, Miss Cox. We like a challenge and to explore, practising our problem solving to develop our thinking skills both indoors and outdoors. We are starting phonics this term and are very excited by this. Look in our phonics and reading section to see what we will be doing. Find out about our curriculum and long-term plans in the Our Curriculum section of our website.
We have a range of home learning. Our ‘Ten Town’ website has been busy with lots of Butterflies accessing these activities regularly at home! You can access Ten Town on this link Ten Town .All of the Butterflies have been working so hard with their Phonics. Over half term each child will have a set of resources to take home so that they can keep practising their phonics daily, as well as a reading book or discussion book. Don’t forget, you can log onto your bug club log-in to access a range of reading books! Remember, any achievements from home can be written on a praise note to give to your teacher! For phonics sounds so far please click here Phonics sounds and actions so far .
We are sure there are lots of achievements which happen at home which your teachers would love to know about too! These do not have to be academic, it can be about confidence, becoming more independent or being kind to family or friends! Send these into school with your child, and we will put them into their books and learning journeys. You can download them from here Praise notes from home pdf .
Homework across the Early Years Foundation Stage consists of sharing a story book at home with a parent/carer, listening to stories and songs or looking at books independently. Your child with receive a new story book each week and complete a simple book review alongside this to share their favourite parts from the book.
