 RED AND GREEN Butterflies Information page


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 Mrs Avilia provide SEND support in Reception.

PE days will be Monday AM for Red Butterfly Class and Tuesday AM for Green Butterfly Class.  PE kit is as follows- White t-shirt, royal blue shorts, black pumps. Please make sure ALL PE kit is named. 

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. Download the 'school jotter' app for whole school newsletters and notifications. Thank you.

Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

Keeping in touch whilst school is closed

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

Hi everyone,

We hope you are all well and keeping healthy, happy and safe during this difficult time.

Whilst school is closed for the majority of children we will be keeping in touch with all of you via the "Butterflies News and Information" page on TAPESTRY. You too can send messages on Tapestry by adding an "observation" (comment, message, photo, video etc) to your child's learning journal or the "Butterflies News and Information". 

You can also get in touch with us via email



We are both working in school on a rota basis and working from home on the other school days. Therefore, we will reply to your email as soon as we can. For our own well being, we are going to try and only work during the school day and not on an evening and weekends. We're sure you will all understand our reasons for this.

We wish you all the very best for these coming weeks.

Love from Everyone in the Butterly Team x

The evil pea has escaped!

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

We were all surprised and confused to see lots of green dots on the carpet today.... a message had been left with a mystery parcel. We read the message 'I have escaped' and opened the parcel to find the story... 'Supertato'. Oh no.....the Evil Pea has escaped!  #Supertato #LeedsYearOfReading
