Butterfly 1 children who attended school on Monday and Tuesday had lots of fun on their minibeast hunt around the school grounds. The weather was not brilliant but they were very keen to search. On the Tuesday we did an indoor minibeast hunt using pictures. This helped the children to learn how to tally.

Parents please see the attached booklet for guidance on phonics.
Should you require resources for your child during this time please look at our suggested activities for children in butterflies on the link above.
These are just ideas but we would encourage you to read and share stories as much as possible at home with your children. Sing number songs and nursery rhymes.
Stay safe, hopefully see you all soon.

Whilst out on playground duty this afternoon Mrs Spilsted and a group of children wandered over to the school pond. They couldn't believe their eyes! The pond was full of frogs and frog spawn. The children wanted a closer look, so Mrs Dix caught some frogs and put them in a big bucket and the children took it in turns to come and take a look. A few frogs attempted to escape and there were lots of giggles when they tried to jump out of Mrs Dix's hands. They were all safely returned to their home after the children had looked.
The Butterflies enjoyed learning about camouflage last week with our topic of patterns. For homework they were asked to take a photo of themselves in camouflage.
Thank you to all the children who carried out the homework. From the sound of it lots of parents had fun too!
Mrs Dix also joined in the fun, can you spot her below?

We had a fabulous week of celebrating Chinese New Year.
Monday - Dance in the hall. We put together movements of being a dragon, a fan, fireworks and a lion. We then got into groups and moved around the hall as Chinese dragons.
Tuesday - We learnt the story of 'The Great Race' and then retold the story in our own words using toy animals.
Wednesday - Lots of wonderful craft and maths activities. Some of the children made Chinese lanterns, while others enjoyed making their own cherry blossom tree. We even carried out mathematics by using the balancing scales to find out which animals were the heaviest and lightest. Writing Chinese numbers in the rice was fun and making our own fortune cookies out of card was tricky but we persevered.
Thursday - First we went out on the big playground and to the sound of a beating drum and tambourine we moved once again like Chinese dragons.Then we shared a feast of Chinese food and even had a go at using real chopsticks.
Friday - We finished decorating our lanterns and we all took home our own fortune cookies to enjoy.
We have really enjoyed the story of the Bog Baby this half term. We used our imagination to design and create our own fabulous Bog Babies out of play-dough. We used the i-pads to take photos of our work, which are displayed in school.
We think you will agree that our display in our classroom looks amazing! You will get to see lots of the children's work when you attend parents evening.
