Reception - Butterflies





We are starting the New Year with a toy theme, giving the children a chance to bring in some of their favourite toys to discuss. This will enable the children to develop their questioning and answering skills to become better communicators. We will also be looking at old toys, so please have a look in your loft or the back of a cupboard for something we can display in our toy museum to give the children an understanding of a time line and how things can change over time.

We will celebrate the Chinese New Year on 1st February by spending a week finding out about China and some of the Chinese traditions. 

We will end half term with the exploits of Supertato and the Evil Pea! Everyone loves a superhero and it is a lovely opportunity for the children to demonstrate their creativity as they design and write about their own superhero.



Percy the Park Keeper and friends

I can't believe that the first half of the term has gone already! The children have settled in so well, gaining independence and learning how to be a good listener.  It was lovely seeing you all for Parents Evening, thank you for your support with their targets. Please keep practising the letter sounds taught as this is crucial for early reading skills.

Mrs Wort and I hope you had a great half term break.

During this half term we will be looking at woodland trees and animals through the stories of Percy the Park Keeper by Nick Butterworth and rehearsing for our Nativity performance.

Thank you



Miss Finnegan and Mrs Wort welcome you all to Butterfly class and are really looking forward to the term ahead. It was so lovely to see some of you on our preschool visits and we had so much fun when you came in for your stay and play session.
