Welcome to Butterfly Class
Butterfly class is a year two class.
Our teachers are called Mrs Foster and Mrs Walden. We also have Mrs Pearce and Mrs Everett working with us every day.
Our topics for the year are:
Autumn term: What makes Britain Great?
(Learning all about our home country and exploring things such as the Royal family and the NHS as well as researching Florence Nightingale)
Spring term: What’s up there?
(Learning about the main facts about space and researching people who have been there, both in the past and in our lifetime)
Summer term: Is water everywhere?
(Thinking about water and why it is so important… learning about the different bodies of water around the world and also thinking about how we can save as much water as possible)
We LOVE reading in Butterfly class ... (we are trying our hardest to all read at least 3 times a week at home too)
Our class book at the minute is 'The Magic Finger' by Roald Dahl. It is already making us laugh
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.
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.
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 at least 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. The children will be challenged to find as many words as they can with the same spelling pattern and then write them on a Friday.
Please practise number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 to support them in their maths. For those who are confident with these, please move on to learning the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
Later on this term we will inform you of a new homework system.
