Butterflies Class 2021/2022









Welcome to our class page!


I will be posting on here regularly to show you lots of the exciting things Butterflies Class will be doing in school. 

We are very lucky to have Miss Davis and Mrs Mahoney in the classroom with us. 


Summer Term


In the final half of the Summer term we will be exploring the questions - What jobs are the most important? What job would you like to do when you grow up?


Our Literacy sessions will continue to focus on the development and consistent application of sentence structure. Children will be given plenty of modelled opportunities to construct and write simple sentences. We will continue to highlight the importance of using a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop when writing sentences. This half term we will continue to develop correct formation of letters and being able to sit them neatly on a line when writing. Children will be engaged with books such as A Superhero Like You and the Busy People series of books. They will build upon their knowledge of story structure to help them sequence and retell these stories.



This half term, children will draw upon their knowledge of numbers to 20 and their addition and subtraction skills to explore sharing and halving. They will learn how to identify whether a number is odd or even. Towards the end of the Summer, children will develop their awareness of positional language.



As we approach the end of this school year, children will participate in activities that will prepare them for transition in to Year 1. Children will become buddies for our new starters as visit us from nursery, this will give them the opportunity to work and play cooperatively and show sensitivity to their own needs and the needs of others. Children will prepare a Teddy Bear’s Picnic to welcome our new starters to Longshaw Infant School.



Throughout the Summer term we will be looking to develop children’s ability to be able to share and contribute their ideas with others. They will be encouraged to connect their thoughts by using a range of connectives such as ‘and’ and ‘because’. Through different stories children will be able to express their ambitions for the future. They will be able to share their understanding of different roles in society, making links to their own experiences.   






Please don’t forget that children’s book bags need to be in school daily and reading records should be signed to show that children are reading at home 5 times a week. Reception children will have two PE sessions a week and full PE kits needs to be in school for this. Earrings should not be worn for school in line with the uniform policy.
