Welcome to Butterflies!
Class Teachers: Miss Noon and Mr Dawe
Teaching Assistants: Miss Hulme and Mrs Breheny
We are very excited for the very busy and eventful year ahead in Butterflies, and we are looking forward to working with you and your child for a fun and successful Reception Year.
Although we are split into two classes (Red Admiral with Mr Dawe/Miss Hulme and Holy Blue with Miss Noon/Mrs Breheny) we will spend a lot of time working and playing together, with both classes mirroring each other’s learning.
Here on our class page you will find our Curriculum map which shows what we will be learning about throughout the year, as well as a section about each half term.
Our page will be regularly updated throughout each half term with information and photographs to show you the exciting things we have been learning about.
Reading will link to our new English scheme, Read Write Inc. More details to follow.
Our P.E sessions will be on Thursdays. This session will be taught by a specialist coach. A second weekly P.E. session will be added later in the year, but for the moment we will be promoting physical development in a less formal way within our daily routine.
Please ensure children have their P.E kit in for all P.E sessions.
Parents must provide a note / speak to school if their child is unable to do P.E, otherwise children will be expected to join in.
Children should bring in plasters to cover earrings if they are unable to remove them for lessons
Supporting at home
Please encourage counting and number recognition where possible.
Allow you children the opportunity to explore mark making.
Try to read a wide range of age-appropriate books to you children. It is good practice to reread a range of books too.
Challenge your child’s use of language and sentence structure.
