Today was Christmas party day. We played party games and made our own party food. The Santa heads were delicious! So were the biscuits. Well done Butterfly Class.

We have been learning about the Victorian's and the new Christmas traditions that started in Great Britain nearly 200 years ago. Steve Manning visited us and told us about familiy traditions, taught us a parlour game and showed us a few toys from the Victorian era. Thank you for your contributions to cover the cost of his visit.

Yesterday we welcomed a visitor To Butterfly Class. The big bad wolf came to tell us what really happened when the pigs houses blew down. He only wanted a tissue to stop him sneezing! It was all an accident! 
We’re sorry wolf, we shouldn’t have said you were big and bad, or mean and grumpy! 
We will be helping the wolf to write a sorry letter to the pigs. We hope they can all be friends! 
 

We spent Wednesday thinking about poppy day, writing poems about the cbbc poppies short film. We talked about how the rabbit didn't know what was frightening him, only that the loud noises and bright lights were scary. We developed our understanding of adjectives to describe how he was feeling at different moments in the film. 

We made poppies and wrote thank you messages to our armed forces. The children have been very grown up and sensible during discussions and have shown great maturity in their thinking. Well done Butterflies!

 

On Thursday we thought about Carnival. We are very excited about the carnival on Saturday. The children enjoyed learning a little more about the carnival and recording facts in their guided reading journals. 

We played fairground games like hook a duck and hoopla. The children practised their number bonds and read and wrote words using their phonics knowledge. Friday morning was our maths time. We all found missing numbers to complete out number bonds of 10. 

 

What a fun and exciting few days. 

Enjoy the weekend, we hope the rain stays away for carnival. We'll see you all on Monday for another exciting week! 

 

Mrs Casson and Miss Bartlett. 

What a busy week in Butterfly class!

Wow! What a busy half term you have all had. Thank you to those of you who were able to talk to your child about their number bonds. Some of you even brought in photos of all the hard work you have been doing. Well done!

We're off to a good start in Butterfly class this term. Keep up the good work children!

We have been thinking about the aliens who love underpants for national poetry day. We designed our own aliens and pants and played with the alien puppets. We gave aliens new names using our phonics sounds and then we learnt a short poem all about those pesky aliens! We hope you enjoy watching it!
