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

Sing our tricky word song 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.

Welcome to Red and Green Butterfly Classes 2018!

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

What a great start we are having to the new school year. It is a pleasure getting to know all our new "Butterflies". 

The children are busy getting to know each other, learning each other's names and making new friends.

They are settling in well and getting used to their new routines. They have agreed their class rules and are enjoying earning team points when they remember to follow them!

We have also started our class reward system and the children are collecting "pom poms" in our class reward jar. When all the Butterflies listen carefully during carpet time the "Special helpers" for the day put a pom pom in the jar and we all clap with excitement. When the pom pom jar is full the children have agreed to have a disco in school as their reward! The disco will be during school hours, not at night time as some of the children thought!

We are looking forward to chatting to parents at parents evening next week and hope you have all been able to book a ten minute appointment to see us.

We are excited for the year ahead and promise to keep you up to date with what we are doing in class via our BLOG and TAPESTRY!

Mrs Ellis, Miss Gledhill and the rest of the Butterfly team

Learning our letter names and singing the alphabet

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

We are really enjoying learning our letter names in class and will be assessed next week to see which ones we know.

We love singing along to this song during snack time or at the end of the day! We just have to be careful when saying L, M, N, O and P and make sure these don't get mixed up all into one. You could sing this to your grown ups at home.
