Welcome to Butterfly Class
Hello and welcome to our class page! Here you will find some information on what we are currently learning. You will find lots of useful and important information about Butterfly class in the downloadable booklet below. Please also take a look at the following links where you can find some interesting reads to help and support your child within their development and learning. Below is also the link to Class Dojo. It allows parents and children of Butterfly Class to log in and see messages from myself.
Our current topic is space! What is beyond the clouds? We will learning about the planets that are in our solar system and researching about the astronaut Neil Armstrong.
Please bring in any resources that your child would like to share with the class on this subject.
Homework is obviously the best way for you to support your child at school. Reading with them regularly, asking them comprehension questions and helping with their spellings are essential. All children have weekly spellings, connected to their Letters and Sounds phase, which is handed out every half term. They will also receive a ‘look, say, cover, write, check’ sheet, in their homework folder. Additionally, a maths sheet will be sent home (in the folder) or it may be set online, https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login. Children will have their login ID in their diary shortly. The school code is ‘mayl’, and children should all know their passwords (if stuck, ask your class teacher). The children will be sent home with English homework. This could be focusing on handwriting, an element of grammar or a reading comprehension for Year 2s.
At some points during the year, usually over a holiday period, we may give project homework for the children to complete in the format of their choice.
Reading, spelling and homework activities will be monitored every week and super readers will be awarded on a Thursday. Homework is sent home on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
