Reading at home

The children are enjoying learning to read in school and taking a reading book and library book home each week. A few parents have asked for advice when hearing their child read at home. This short video is very useful and gives some good tips about how to hear your child read. Please watch it and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask a member of our team

Helping your child to read at home


Red Butterfly class sing The Gruffalo Song to their Year 5 Buddies


Where have the Green Butterflies gone? They all turn into terrifying Gruffalos when they perform to the Year 5 Class buddies!


D-I-S-C-O! Red Butterflies show off their dance moves at their class reward disco!

Sing our tricky word song with us!

This week we have been learning to read tricky words in class and we love singing this song to help us learn the words.

We can't sound out tricky words as they wouldn't make sense...this is why they are very tricky! In class we are learning; the, I, go, no, into and to. 

Please help us at home to recognise these words by sight. There might be tricky words in our reading books that we can point out, or even in our favourite story books at home.

Well done to all the children in Red and Green Butterfly classes who completed their creative homework about their favourite place in the world. It was amazing to see their homework displayed in the school hall as part of our school exhibition. Our world homework

Bonfire and Firework Safety

amanda on: Red and Green Butterfly Classes

Wow! What a busy and fun day we had yesterday!

The Red and Green butterflies discussed Bonfire night and why people celebrate it. We looked at pictures of different fireworks and chose which one was our favourite! 

We learnt about how to be safe when we watch fireworks or bonfires. Can your children remember one of our rules on how to stay safe?

In the afternoon, Mrs Duggan had organised a firework display for the whole school. Our Year 5 buddies came to collect us and we all had a friend to hold hands with. We all watched as the fireworks lit up the sky, it was so exciting! 

Have a great weekend to those who are celebrating Bonfire Night this weekend. 

Be safe, be bright, be seen at night. Have fun!!

Reading for fun!

amanda on: Red and Green Butterfly Classes

Wow! The butterfly team have been so impressed with the reading across the Red and Green Butterfly classes. We are getting more and more confident with our sounds and using our finger to sound out words in our books.

We are reading twice a week in school. To ensure your child can change their book, please make sure their reading books and reading records are brought to school in their book bags everyday. 

Developing a love for reading in the early years is a lifelong and lasting gift. Not only for pleasure but also in the development of important literacy skills. Developing a love for books in the early years will set your child up for reading readiness and help lay the basis for your child’s success inside, outside and beyond school.

You can encourage a love of reading at home in many ways;

  • Acting out a favourite story using toy animals or props to bring a story to life!
  • Find somewhere different to read, in the garden, in a cosy corner, at the park or you could make a den and read inside with a torch.
  • You can play games such as 'fastest finger'. Use our finger to find sounds or tricky words in reading books, library books or our favourite stories at home.

Each time you write in your child's reading record after they have read at home, your child will earn a team point! Happy reading everyone!

Welcome back after half term!

amanda on: Red and Green Butterfly Classes

It was great seeing all the children arriving back at school today with big smiles on their faces and hearing about some of the things they've enjoyed doing in the half term holiday. Thank you to all the children who have returned their Autumn bag, we will be using the items inside the bags to make Autumn collages and pictures this week. If you still have your bag at home please return it to school by Wednesday 1st November.

The children were very excited to see the new role play areas in our classrooms; a Bakery in Red Butterflies and a School in Green Butterflies. They were also thrilled to see our new smart boards that were installed during the holiday. To teach the children how to use a programmable toy we have purchased remote controlled cars, one of which was used today by a group of children from Red and Green Butterflies. 

The children also noticed some changes that we've made to our outside learning area. The stage and music area have been altered so that children can freely access the instruments and dance and move around on the wooden stage. The mud kitchen is now open and the children have been busily pretending to make pumpkin soup with the pans, utensils and microwave that staff have kindly donated. The tyres, wooden logs and wooden steps have been moved into the smaller grassed area outside of Nursery to create an obstacle course which encourages the children to move in different ways, balance and climb up and down steps.
