Welcome back to our second week in Butterflies! The children did so well last week, settling into the new routines, coming in sensibly and showing us where they are in their learning. It has been lovely starting to get to know them all, we have such a super class of Butterflies
This week we will be teaching and recapping the sounds: m, a, s, d, t. We teach the children the sound, practise orally blending and writing the letters we have learnt. On average, it takes a child viewing a sound 55 times for them to recall it swiftly for reading. Recapping these sounds at home will help your child's recall and fluency. If you would like more information about how we teach phonics in school, be sure to come along to the parents' workshop on Wednesday 26th September, 7-9pm. Help with the pronunciation of 'pure sounds' can be found using the link at the bottom of this page.

It was fantastic to meet you all on home visits last week and we are very excited to support you on your first week of school! We want you to feel welcome in Butterflies so we have put your family pictures up and have also created an interests board in the classroom based on the things that you told us were exciting and fun for you. Have a look and see if you can find some of the things you enjoy!
We know that the start of school can be exciting and sometimes bewildering. If you are feeling uncertain at all, please ask an adult to help as we are here to support you and want to make sure you feel happy and safe in school.
Hope you have a fantastic first week!
