Welcome to the Butterflies' class page!

These pages are regularly updated with all of our wonderful learning opportunities. Each half term we will focus on a new question as part of our Science and Learning Challenge. I will often update parents via Marvellous Me as well so please ask for your code if you need it!

Please always feel free to discuss any ideas or concerns you may have at the end of the day, or we can arrange a more convenient time if needed.


PE - This half term PE will be dance on a Wednesday afternoon so please make sure your child has a PE kit in school. They will need a white t-shirt and black shorts which are clearly labelled with their name. We will also do outdoor learning most Monday afternoons so please ensure your child has appropriate footwear and a coat if necessary.

Homework - Each half term the homework your child receives will be slightly different. Some half terms will have a topic/project task, others will have Maths and Literacy. Your child will also be expected to read 5 times a week - this can include their Read Write Inc book too.

Autumn 1 - This half term your challenge is to create a superhero shield! What is special about you? What are you super at? What are your favourite colours and things? Use whatever you would like to make a shield which shows off your wonderful self!

Useful dates:

1st September - Back to school!

15th September - Mr Pepper in all day for our Superhero topic
