Welcome to Butterflies Class Page


Welcome to Butterflies Class Page. Here you will find lots of information about what we are doing within school and the different topics we are learning. We are all so excited to welcome you back to school after a fantastic summer holiday.




In English this term we are focusing on  'The Day the Crayon Quit' by Oliver Jeffers. We will be exploring this book through the use of drama and our comprehension skills. By reading this story together we will be able to unpick all the characters and understand why they are feeling the way they are.



Our whole class reading book will be 'Fantastic Mr Fox' by Roald Dahl. At the end of each day we will hear all about the adventures that Mr Fox and his animal friends have been up too.




In Maths we will be investigating place value. Year 1 children will be sorting objects into groups, understanding one more and one less than a given number and being able to compare and order numbers. While year 2 children will be comparing and ordering numbers within 50, begin counting in 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's and will be able to represent numbers to 100. 



In Science Butterflies will be looking at everyday materials. We will be identifying and naming everyday materials, describing simple properties and sorting objects into groups. 



Our topic this term is 'Me, Myself and I'. During this topic we will be exploring the geography of our school and all around us. While also exploring compass directions and directional language (for example phrases like: left, right, forward, backwards).
