Class Pages 2015 - 2016


 Welcome to the ‘Butterflies’ home page. Our class teachers are Mrs Mace and Mrs Evans and our teaching assistants are Mrs Lane, Miss Cattle, Miss Robinson, Miss Watson and Miss Leckenby. You will see us at the FS2 classroom door every morning from 8.45am if you have any questions or messages.


We will listen to children read every day so please ensure that your child's book bag and home reading book are brought to school every day. Please sign and date if you have heard your child read at home to enable us to change their book. Reading records will be checked and books changed on a weekly basis and remember you can access more books online with your Bug Club username and password.

Homework will be handed out on half-termly basis. You will be given five challenges to choose from during our current topic. You can also help your child by reading daily and signing your child's home - school reading record and practising reading and writing numbers. 

We may be the youngest children in the school but we want to show you we do the most learning! Each day we have Maths, Literacy and Phonics in addition to exciting ongoing provision to help us learn through our play. We never stop! 
Please take some time to look at our exciting adventures and you never know you may learn something new too!


Spring 1

 Our Spring topic is Fantasy and in Spring 1 we have looked at superheroes, knights, princess and castles.  Our Superhero topic gave us a chance to learn one of our favourite stories 'Superworm'  and we have produce lots of writing in our books and independently at the writing table.  The children have enjoyed recreating superhero poses using the green screen to enhance the photographs.  

       

In maths we have been learning to subtract using objects and number lines and we have been describing 2D shapes.
     
 

We have been continuing to apply our phonics skills to our writing and some of us are beginning to write independent sentences.

Even though the weather has been cold and miserable some days, we have continued to enjoy learning in our outdoor area and exploring the changes that occur in the woodland area.

Autumn 2

In Autumn 2 the children have been learning all about different kinds of celebrations, we have talked about birthdays, Diwali, Christmas and many more.  

In phonics we have been continuing to improve our reading and writing and we know all the letters of the alphabet.  We have also started to learn tricky words 'he', 'she', 'me', 'be', 'we'

        
         

We have been using our phonics knowledge in Literacy where we have been writing sentences.  We have been using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

In maths we have been learning to counting 2 groups together and thinking about different ways we can work out answers to number sentences.

      

The highlight of this term has been our Christmas Production 'A Miracle in Town'.  We are very proud of all the children and would like to say a big thank-you to all the parents who helped.  

We would also like to say a big thank-you to the school's media team for filming our production.

Autumn 1

During Autumn 1 Foundation stage has been learning all about ourselves.  We have talked about our families and pets as well as taking a bus tour of hull.  On our tour we took in some amazing sites such as the Humber Bridge, The KC Stadium, The Deep and the Street Life museum.  At the museum we discovered how transport had changed over time.  

              

In our phonics sessions we have been learning our sounds so we can beginning to read and write words by ourselves.  We have also been learning to site read tricky words 'to', 'I', 'the', 'into', 'no', 'go'.

Our maths lessons have focused on number where we have been practising our counting to 20 as well as recognising numbers to 20.  The children have counted many objects and some children have begun to order numbers as well as find missing numbers in a sequence.  We have also been singing number songs to help us count forwards and back wards to 20
