Please remember to bring your childs book bag / library book on Tuesdays as this is the day we change our library books, we really need to get into a good habit of remembering book bags every day ...Thankyou 📚📚

Wow what a wonderful week we have had.... The mud kitchen is back! It’s great to have been able to get out and play this week 😀

We had a lovely World Book Day 📚😁🦋⭐️

Wow what a great morning celebrating World Book Day 📚 Butterflies you all looked amazing 🌟

We are thinking about our feelings and emotions and how to manage them in Butterflies, we have been learning all about the The Colour Monster. A good book to help young children identify, recognise and explore their emotions. A small girl narrates the story, and begins by introducing her friend, the colour monster. He's feeling all mixed up and very confused, and the girl explains that it is because his feelings (and colours) are 'all stirred together'.

We are learning a new sound in Phonics every week, this week and part of next week is the letter sound “S”. How many words can you think of that start with the “S” sound? 🐍 ✂️ 🥄 🧦

A date for your diary ! We are celebrating World Down Syndrome Day on March 21st .... watch this space ! ⭐️

A big welcome back to all our lovely Butterfly families🦋 ..... this half term we are learning all about the life cycle of a Caterpillar and we will be focusing on lots of activities around our class story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar 🐛
