Butterfly Class is our EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 class taught by Mr Leadley.
Overviews for parents:
In EYFS, Year 1 and 2 continues in a practical and fun way linked to our curriculum. Throughout the year the children will learn to:
- Develop their phonics knowledge, and learn some spelling rules. We use the Letters and Sounds scheme for phonics and we use Collins Big Cat Reading books for home reading. We also have access to bug club books which enables children to read from an app.
- A key focus for this year group is to improve their writing style and structure.
- Children are expected to use and apply a range of Numeracy strategies and solve more complex problem solving questions.
Our Expectations for Home Learning in Butterfly Class
Recommended minimum time to spend on home learning – 20 minutes reading per day PLUS 30 minutes per week on other identified home learning.
Each half term, the children can create a topic project that can take any form (poster, model, PowerPoint, story) to share with their peers. To celebrate their projects, the children are able to present their projects to the whole class. This is a super speaking and listening opportunity that allows our children to share their knowledge, and flourish in confidence.
