Welcome to the Butterflies!
Hello and welcome!
*Meet the Butterfly grown-ups*
The grown-ups in the Butterfly class are Miss Wright, Mrs De'Ath and Mrs Madin. We love teaching the Butterflies and we are so proud of their achievements!
If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you!
*Our Christian Value for the term*
SERVICE IN THE COMMUNITY
Our value for this term is 'Service in the community'. We will focus on how we serve (or help) other people in our communities. Serving God means serving others.
Jesus taught his disciples to lead a life of service to God and to others. He also washed the feet of these disciples at the Last Supper, turning upside down the normal relationship between leader and follower. The Bible teaches us that we should all serve those in need, whoever they are, and ‘go the extra mile’ to put ourselves out for someone else’s benefit.
Matthew 20:28 I did not come to be served, but to serve.
Galatians 5:13 Serve one another in love.
What does this mean in practice?
How can we serve and help others? This includes our friends at school, our families at home and within our local community too.
We hope that all of our amazing Butterflies have had a lovely half term and are ready for a busy and enjoyable term. We are really looking forward to all the learning that is going to take place this term whilst we continue to look after each other and stay safe. Learning will take place both in school and also via 'Zoom school' for the children in our class who are currently learning from home. I am sure that everyone will continue to do an amazing job!
In phonics we will continue to practise and learn those difficult phase 3 diagraphs and trigraphs and will be applying these to our reading and writing. Our weekly writing activities will focus around popular quality child's stories and will allow us to write in a range of different ways. The short writing activities, linked to Talk for Writing, will enable us to develop our use of phonics, punctuation and handwriting whilst encouraging independent writing. In Maths we are continuing to develop our understanding and love of number including practical addition and subtraction, and later in the term doubling and halving.
Alongside all of this we will learning indoors and outdoors, challenging our ideas and allowing the amazing Butterflies to lead their learning as we plan our play together.
We are going to have a brilliant term of learning and fun, both at home and at school!
