Butterflies

Welcome to Butterflies Class!

In Butterflies Class, our topic for the Summer term will be ‘Get Set Go!’, we will be discovering all about our health and how to look after ourselves; how to get fit, eat well and improve our well-being! We will explore a variety of sports, types of exercises and find out how physical activity can be fun AND keep us fit. We will also be exploring our senses, learn to sequence the human life cycle and compare it to contrasting animals! Our topics are integrated across the curriculum, throughout all subjects and in line with 'Big Writing' for English. If you have any interesting artefacts, photos or even experiences your child would like to share which would link to our health, exercise or sports topic, please talk to your child’s teaching staff to arrange bringing them into school.

For this term’s International Week, we will be learning all about Kenya; the culture, food, traditions, festivals and language. If you or your child would like to bring in any souvenirs or have any interesting facts, Miss Lilley would love to hear or see them!

In June, we will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and also have Healthy Living Week.

Please continue to check Tapestry as we shall be sharing the children’s work and the different activities we will be doing.

PE

We have PE every Tuesday and Friday. We ask that your child wears their PE kit to school on these days. Please could earrings be removed and longer hair tied back on PE days.  PE kit should include black shorts, a white t-shirt, plimsolls and black tracksuit bottoms or leggings. 

Please also ensure that your child has spare clothing in their bags in case of any toilet accidents. These should be kept in school on your child’s coat peg.

COOKING

The children will take part in cooking/ food preparation activities throughout this term, learning a range of useful life skills linked to cooking. Food will be consumed in class at our daily snack session. 

HOMEWORK

Each week your child’s homework will be to complete 30 minutes of Reading Eggs; this is assessed and monitored weekly and to complete a task on School Jam, a Maths App linked to Power Maths.

Children will read daily in school as part of their Read Write Inc lesson, and we ask that they also read at home three times a week, with diaries being read and signed each time. This will help your child to receive their reading sticker and once their bookmark is filled with stickers, lead to them choosing a book of their own to keep and enjoy.

If you have any queries in regard to this homework, please don't hesitate to speak to Miss Lilley.

If you have any queries or concerns, or if you would like an appointment to see your class teacher, Miss Lilley will be on the door each morning. If a meeting is needed, Mrs Lilley is also available after school, however please contact her to arrange this in advance.
