Welcome to Butterfly Class!
All of the children have had great fun settling into Butterfly Class and making lots of new friends. Everybody has done a great job learning the new routines and I look forward to seeing them progress in term 2. In Maths this term, the YR R children have been practicing their counting and learning all about numbers to 10. All of the children enjoyed learning about 2D shapes and we even went on a shape hunt around the school and outside area. In Maths, the YR 1 children have really enjoyed learning how to add and subtract different numbers and have been introduced to new equipment to help them in their maths lessons.
The YR R children have learnt lots of new sounds in Phonics this term and have enjoyed practicing their letter formation around the classroom. Our Power of Reading book for this term has been 'The Lonely Beast' the children really enjoyed painting their own monsters and even acted out the story! Butterfly Class have been learning lots of exciting songs ready for our Harvest Festival at the end of the term and have learnt all about why Harvest time is important to others.
I look forward to seeing Butterfly Class in Term 2 and wish you all a happy half term!
