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*
Trust, feeling comfortable in each other’s company, being able to share joys and sorrows are all features of friendship and these are things of immense value. True friendship enables each person to grow and ensures that the unique individuality of each person is recognised. All this echoes the value placed by God on the preciousness of each person.
Learning to be a good friend, someone who can be trusted and
is loyal, takes a lifetime. Talk together about how friends
come in all shapes and sizes. Some are young, some are old.
Some are always there, some we see only occasionally.
• How do we choose our friends?
• What makes a good friend?
• Are we a good friend to others?
*Our Learning for the term*
During our first term in Reception we are learning all about ourselves and each other. We will be making new friends, discovering what everyone likes and doesn't like and finding out all about our classroom. Together we will have lots of fun and learn lots!
Our Talk for Writing text this half term is the Gingerbread Man. We will be learning the story, retelling it, altering it and exploring the different characters.
Alongside this will are also going to start Phase 2 phonics, based upon Letters and Sounds, and within this begin to read more and write together.
It is going to be a busy and exciting half term!!!
The weather is getting colder, the days are getting shorter and the Butterflies are getting busier. We had an amazing start to the year and looking forward to the next half term. This half term we are continuing to develop our love of reading and songs, learning and sharing a new one every week.
Our shared reading will start with the Owl Babies and we cant wait to find out more about woodland animals. This will also help us with our next Talk for Writing story - The Baby Mouse. It is another brilliant story and one that was written by Pi Corbett. We are looking forward to innovating this story to make it our own just like we created The Marshmallow Man this term (based on the Gingerbread Man).
In Maths we are continuing to develop our problem solving skills learning all about number, calculations, shapes and measures. We love to apply what we learn to our own problems and in our play.
Alongside all of this, we are learning about our environment and having fun - sharing, being with our friends and being amazing every day!
