Welcome to Brilliant Butterflies!



Welcome to Butterflies Class. We are in Year one and our class teacher's name is  Mr Kendall. Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Hollywood.



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!



Our Topic Question for the Spring Term is...

Would you rather live in a castle or a coal mine?

In English, we will be reading lots of great stories. Reading is fun, relaxing, inspiring and very important!
