Welcome to our Butterfly Class page!
I am Miss Cole and your teaching assistants are Miss Trapnell and Mrs Waugh. Every Thursday, Mrs Turner will teach Butterfly Class.
Please note that we have PE on a Thursday and Friday so remember your PE kit. Please ensure your child has their coloured PE top, black bottoms, hair tied up and jewellery removed on these days so that they are ready and safe to take part.
Please not that we no longer have Forrest School on a Thursday afternoon.
ASK ME ABOUT...
Outside our classroom, there is now an 'ask me about' sign which will detail something that we have learnt about today. You can then ask your child about this topic as a conversation walking home, to recap learning and develop their speaking and listening skills too!
Children should bring in their reading records every day and are encouraged to read every night at home. If they have their diary signed to say that they have read 4 or more times a week they will be rewarded with certificates! Please do encourage your child to read at home, it'll only take 5 to 10 minutes and makes a tremendous difference to their confidence and attainment in class!
GOOD AS GOLD TOKENS
The whole class are also able to collect 'Good as Gold' slips every day to show they have wonderful behaviour. How many can they earn between now and the end of the year? Who will be the first to get 100 Good as Gold slips in Butterfly Class?
Homework will be given out every Wednesday and will consist of spellings to practise for a test on Thursday and Fantastic Facts maths work which helps recall and speed. Please return both by the following Thursday.
The children will bring home spellings to learn each week and will be tested on them every Thursday. Please help your child to learn them. The spellings are linked to their phonics work and are taken from the National Curriculum list for Year 1.
The spellings this week are:-

STAR OF THE WEEK
Star of the Week will be awarded to a different child every Friday afternoon for being a superstar all week! It could be for their attitude to learning, behaviour or producing outstanding work (to name a few!). They will then take home the class bear for the weekend and write about their adventures in our class book. Who will be the first star of the week this year?
