 RED AND GREEN ButterflieS


Welcome to Red and Green Butterfly Classes. Here you will find lots of key information about what happens in Reception class.


Staff working in Reception.


Mrs Ellis is the teacher in Red Butterfly Class (Mon - Thurs). Mrs Skelton will teach Red Butterfly Class on a Friday.

Miss Gledhill is the teacher in Green Butterfly Class.

Miss Dean and Miss Dolby are the teaching assistants who work between both classes.

Miss Crabbe and Miss Avila provide SEND support in Reception.

PE days will be Monday AM for Red Butterfly Class and Tuesday AM for Green Butterfly Class.  For the first half term we will practice taking off and putting on our shoes and socks before and after PE. Please note PE kit is not needed until after Christmas, a letter will go out to remind parents and carers about the required PE kit nearer the time. 

Home learning books are sent home on a Friday and they need to be returned to class by the following Wednesday. 

Reading will take place once a week in class with a member of staff. Children must bring their reading books and reading records in their book bag every day. We recommend that your child reads around 3 or 4 times a week at home. Whenever someone listens to them read can we encourage you to write a brief comment in their reading records. Your child will earn a team point each time they read at home. 

Tapestry - We use the online journal app called 'Tapestry' to record and share your child's learning with you at home. We love seeing what home learning your child does outside of school and encourage parents to share these photographs and videos via Tapestry which will contribute to your child's profile. We are delighted that together we are able to build a journal of your child’s learning journey in Reception class. 

Water bottles - We encourage your child to bring a water bottle to school (water only please). Please write your child's name on their water bottles as well as all items of school uniform.

Snack - Fruit or vegetables are provided in school as well as free school milk up until your child's 5th birthday. If you would like your child to continue to have milk in school after their 5th birthday, please visit the cool milk website -  https://www.coolmilk.com 


Please visit our class page and Tapestry as often as you can to keep up to date with all the latest news.

Settling in

Amanda Ellis (amanda) on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

We are very proud of the children for how they are settling into their new classes and for some children a new school as well. They are getting to know each other and are showing one of our school values of 'Friendship'.

The children are also learning to show respect by listening to each other and listening and joining in during whole class and group activities. The children are trying to show respect for the resources and toys inside the classroom and on our playground. Our class targets is one of our school values, 'Respect.' When we achieve our class target we put a pom pom in the jar and when the jar is full we will have a class reward!
