The full time and part time adults working in the Butterfly Class

2021 - 2022 Yearly Overview

Phonics

As from Spring 2, 2022, our phonics will be following 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds'. Please see more details for parents on the link : Little Wandle Phonics link for parents

 

Please refer to Mrs Newrick's recent parentmail to explain how the transition of phonics will work for the children and for parents.

Summer term 2022

The Summer term will have a some weeks that are based around different learning themes. These will include Music, Science, Expressive Arts, Safety and also the Beach. Our role play area has so far included a railway station and Buckingham Palace! The last part of the term will return to being a 'Home Corner' as this is what our Butterfly children seem to enjoy the most this year!

Art Competition

The whole school have been involved in an Art Competition which links with the local community. each child has been busy planning and creating a painting, the only rule being NO paint brushes! It has been wonderful to see what the children use, from feathers, pipettes and sponges, to fingers, cotton buds and forks! We invited Sally Temple, a local artist who exhibits her oil paintings (using fingers only) at the Hingham Art Gallery to make the final judgement. She found it incredibly hard as the standard was so high. Winners and runners up will be displayed in the Art Gallery window and inside too! Many thanks to both Sally for her time and also the Hingham Art Gallery for using their space to display the wonderful paintings. Well done Hingham children!

We rescued a cocoon that needed some help. Look what happened after a few days of keeping it safe!

MUSIC WEEK

Some pictures to show what we have been doing in our short music week.

SPRING - 2nd half term

In Spring 2 the children are learning about SPRING! This will include learning about birds, farm (and baby) animals, where our food comes from and some animal life cycles. Please find below some photographs of some of the things that they have been doing in Reception. These will be added to regularly as we get more photographs!

We have been making dens for hibernating animals!

This half term we have looked at Diwali and Guy Fawkes night and made some comparisons to Christmas. Now we have moved on to  'Winter Wonderland' where we are learning about animals in the Artic and Antartic. This has included painting, pictograms for our favourite Artic animals and trying to work out how to rescue animals that are stuck in blocks of ice. Please see below for the most recent photographs. Thank you.

Here is a video to show you around our Butterfly Class!
