RED AND GREEN BUTTERFLIES Information
Welcome to Red and Green Butterfly Classes. Here you will find lots of key information about what happens in Reception class.
Staff working in Butterfly Classes
Mrs Ellis is the teacher in Red Butterfly Class
Miss Gledhill is the teacher in Green Butterfly Class
Miss Dean, Miss Sheard are the teaching assistants who work between both classes.
Mrs Cassidy, Mrs Taylor-Ferguson and Miss Gomersall are the teaching assistants who work one to one with individual children.
PE days are Tuesday AM and Thursday AM. Children must wear a PE kit for both lessons which consists of royal blue shorts, white t-shirt, pumps or trainers. In the better weather we will be having PE lessons outside so children also need an outdoor kit. Please label all items of clothing with your child's name.
Home learning is sent home on a Friday and needs to be returned to class the following Wednesday.
Reading will take place once a week in class. 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 an 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.
