Our first week photo




Our Class Mascot is called Oddbod, he will go home with one child each week who has tried their best and get to write about the adventures they have with him!

             We are looking forward to an exciting Autumn Term 2018 ! 


 Our Topic is Were the Queen's toys better than yours?'  


Our learning will focus around the similarities and differences in toys today and in the past. There will be an in depth look at toys from the Victorian period of history and today's toys.




Our daily reads in the Autumnr Term will be -




All by Julia Donaldson.





Maths is lots of fun in Butterflies! 

Cool Count - counting forwards and backwards in ones, counting in twos, fives and tens, and even times tables!

Daily Bursts - Time, Money, Measurements and Shape.

                      Skills -  Place value, Addition & Subtraction and Shape.



    Texts to inspire our writing are Dogger, Lost in the Toy Museum, The Nutcracker, toys in Space and Biscuit Bear.

A recount will be written after our visit to Mansfield Museum and we will be writing and performing Firework Poetry.


We will also be building sentences with a subject, predicate and closing punctuation in our  'Rainbow Grammar' work and focusing on letter and number formation in daily handwriting.

. Our Rainbow Grammar work will focus on using simple and compound sentences, questions, statements and exclamations; as well as identifying word classes and of course spelling!

          Throughout the Aummer term we will be exploring everyday materials.



In art, we are focusing on the work of the famous artist,

Andy Warhol. We will be designing and creating our own Andy Warhol style piece of work linked to our work on toys.




     Our D.T. will have a sculpture focus (clay). We will be learning how to use clay and will be making our very own clay pencil pots.


In music this term we will be using  our new school scheme of work 'Charanga'.



In P.E our focus this term will be  onmultiskills and dance

P.E is on Tuesday's and Thursday's. Please remember to bring your P.E kit - shorts, T-shirt and pumps/trainers.
In R.E we will be learning all about families. We will be having a theme day and also a visit from the Reverend Caroline


Remember to read every night and get your diary signed - you will earn a star stamp each time!

We read everyday in school so you will need your reading book and reading diary with you every day.

Also, have a go at reading a book using your BUG CLUB account!

There will be no written homework for Butterflies in the Autumn Term.
However focus will be on reading and phonics. Please help your child to practise their phonics words each week as we will have a phonics quiz each Friday.

                   THANK YOU for your support, it really does make a HUGE

                      difference to your child's learning.

                                       Spelling Quiz
We also have a Friday spelling/phonics quiz and it would be really helpful if you could support your child in practising their weekly spellings.  Please make sure your child has their reading diary with them and practise spellings every day using look, cover, write check.



Our Computing work will, as always, involve work around E-Safety and knowing how to stay safe online. Our main focus will be learning how to use the computer to support our daily work and beginning to use Purple Mash.


We will be using ICT in lots of other lessons to help our research and presentation of work.
