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

Who has moved all our pens? Could it be the Evil Pea? Let's find out...

We loved watching our Year 5 Buddies singing their Christmas songs

Sing our tricky word songs with us!

We are learning to read tricky words in class and we love singing these songs 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, to, he, we, she and be. 

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.

When the Easter bunny visited the Butterflies

amanda on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

What an 'eggcellent' afternoon we had on our last day of term! When we got back from lunchtime there were footprints in the cloakroom with a clue on the door...we listened carefully to the clue to find further clues around the classroom. It was from the Easter bunny! Our last clue took us to our Year 5 buddies classroom. We were so excited to find that the Easter bunny had left us all a chocolate treat. 

What a great end to a brilliant half term! Thank you Easter bunny!

Melting chocolate

amanda on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

As part of Science week, the butterfly classes observed the effects of before and after we put chocolate in the microwave. We discussed how the chocolate was solid and all predicted what would happen to the chocolate after it had been in the microwave.

After that, we were all able to follow instructions to make our own chocolate nest. What a treat!

Science Week... Germs, germs, germs!

amanda on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

For Science week the butterflies have investigated into how easy germs can spread and the importance of washing our hands regularly; especially after the toilet, when we sneeze and before we eat! We used glitter to represent the germs that can't be seen. One child from each group covered their hands in glitter (germs) and shook each of their friend's hand. We explored and discussed just how easy and quick germs can spread. Our science experiment was then to find out the best way to wash our hands most effectively...Hot soapy water or cold water. We tested both and found out that the best way to wash off the germs is by using warm and soapy water and by cleaning in between our fingers too! We have really enjoyed carrying out our scientific experiments.

World Down syndrome day

amanda on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

Yesterday was World Down syndrome day so lots of us came to school wearing odd socks to support those who have Down syndrome.


We started the morning talking about what down syndrome is and how everyone is different and special. Next we watched the 'carpool karaoke video of 50 mums and 50 children with Down syndrome' singing and signing in Makaton to the Christina Perri song, A Thousand Years.

To finish off we all tried very hard to learn if you're happy and you know it in Makaton! Well done Red and Green Butterflies.
