Growing to Succeed

 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.

 

 CHILDREN STARTING RECEPTION IN SEPTEMBER 2020.  Contact the school office to arrange a visit at Asquith Primary. We would love to meet you and show you our wonderful school. 

 

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

Butterfly Class have special visitors...

Reception class were amazed when three different owls came to visit them today! The children were brilliant at being really quiet so that the owls were not scared, lots of us were very eager to put our hands up to answer and ask questions. #OwlBabies

Mirror, mirror on the wall...

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

Inspired by our school trip to the Pantomime, Reception class have had fun making their own magic mirrors. The children were challenged to make a repeating pattern around their mirrors using jewels and sequins. 'Mirror mirror on the wall...who's the fairest of them all?

Whole School Trip to the Pantomime!

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

Butterfly Class had the most amazing time on their first ever school trip to see 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' with the rest of Asquith Primary. The children were very excited to travel on a double decker bus to the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford. We are very proud of all of the children...your behaviour was AMAZING! Thank you to all of our parent volunteers. #AsquithSpirit

Well done to all of the children in Green and Red Butterfly class who took part in the Autumn reading challenge by reading at least 4 times a week at home - over 20 times this half term! We are very proud of you all and can see the difference in your reading with this extra practice at home. #LeedsYearOfReading #AsquithSpirit
