Welcome to the Butterflies!
Hello and welcome!

If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you!
*Our Christian Value for the term*
Friendship is an undisputed value in our society, with children often spending more time with their friends than with family.
Jesus tells stories of the heavenly banquet to which all are invited. The barriers between people are broken down in a loving community around God. Jesus had stern words to say to those who refused to recognise that all are included in this community of friendship.
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.
“Why did you do all this for me?' he asked. 'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.'
*Our Learning for this term*
We are so excited to start a new and busy year in the Butterflies. This half term we will be enjoying spending time together as we get to know each other and begin our learning journey together.
Our topic this term is 'Me, Myself and I'. We will be learning all about Reception life and the Butterflies classroom. We will make lots of new friends and have exciting and fun days. We will also be thinking about our families, our homes and the local community.
We will be starting our phonic lessons as we learn to read and write together. In Talk for Writing we will be focusing on the Gingerbread Man and retelling stories. In maths, we will be exploring number and be practising our counting, number recognition and number ordering skills. Alongside all of this we will be learning through playing together, exploring, investigating and finding out more.
