Welcome to our Butterfly Class page!
Butterfly Class has a mixture of Foundation and Year 1 children and the teacher is Miss Cole. The teaching assistants for Butterfly Class are Mrs Page, Mrs Moore and Miss Williams.
Please note that we have PE on a Monday and Thursday so remember your PE kit including shoes. 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.
This term, our topic is 'Castle, Kings and Queens.' We will learn about the British Monarchy and make links to famous castles. In storytelling sessions, we are learning the tale of 'Rumpelstiltskin'. We will explore the feelings that the characters experience and use this to help us write our own versions. In Maths, we will be learning about fractions of amounts and shapes. In Science, we will be learning about suitable materials and use this knowledge to design and make a suitable crown.
YEAR 1 HOMEWORK
Homework will be given out every Friday and will consist of spellings to practise for a test on the following Friday and Fantastic Facts maths work which helps recall and speed. The spellings are linked to the Year 1 National Curriculum.
Year 1 Spellings
YEAR 1 READING
Children should bring in their reading records every day and are encouraged to read every night at home. 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. Who will be the first to collect 100 Good as Gold slips?
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?
