Welcome

Butterfly Class

Welcome to Butterfly Class

Butterfly class is a year two class.

Our teachers are called Mrs Foster and Mrs Walden. We also have Mrs Jowitt and Mrs Ashdown working with us every day.

 

Our topics for the year are:

Autumn term: Fire Fire 

(Learning all about The Great Fire of London in 1666 along with fire safety and those involved in the fire service)

Spring term: China

(Learning about China, its culture and its place in the world. Also its amazing history including the terracotta warriors and the Great Wall of China)

Summer term: The Circus is coming to town!

(Thinking about the Circus in literature and its history including how travel has changed over the years. We will also look at the welfare of animals in the past and present)

 

We LOVE reading in Butterfly class ... We all need to read 3 times a week but some of us try even more than that! We earn Dojo points for our reading each week. 

                    

 

Our class book at the minute is 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. 

 

 

 

Useful Information 

 

In class we use class dojo as a way of communicating with all our parents and carers. It allows us to show work that we are proud of, sharing photos of what we are doing in class and also earning Dojo points. Dojo points are rewarded for positive behaviour and work in class. We try to get as many as we can before the week is over. We can also add homework pictures on class dojo so that our teachers can see what we are enjoying at home too.

PE

Our PE days will change every half term so that we can enjoy different PE sessions with some of the different coaches that come in to teach us, but for the first half term they are Mondays and Tuesdays. We can come to school wearing our PE kit but we must have our hair tied back if needed and earrings taken out. PE kit should consist of a light blue t-shirt and navy/black shorts, then on colder days a navy/black tracksuit. 

Homework

Homework is obviously the best way for you to support us at school. Reading at home regularly is so important, asking comprehension questions and helping with spellings are essential.  Let’s try to read more than 3 times a week!

To begin with we will be recapping some of the phonics phases but after half term, we will receive a new spelling pattern each week. We will be challenged to find as many words as we can with the same spelling pattern and then write them on a Friday.

Please help us practise our number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 to support our maths. For those of us who are confident with these, please move on to learning the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

There will also be homework set on our Purple Mash account that link to our current topic, we can choose which homework to complete and when.  Mrs Foster and Mrs Walden choose somebody's homework each week to be displayed in our classroom.
