This is the web page for our Foundation Stage 2 teams, Admiral and Emperor Butterflies. We will be posting lots of news about what we have been doing, as well as useful information for parents and children.
The class teacher in Admirals is Miss Carrott, and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Findlay and Miss Jennings. Mrs Westbury will provide cover for Miss Carrott for a day and a half a week.
The class teacher in Emperors is Mr Littlewood, and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Callender. Mrs Witts will provide cover for Mr Littlewood for half a day a week.
The children will be doing PE on Mondays and Thursdays, except during the first half term when it will be Tuesdays and Thursdays; if children wear earrings they will have to be removed before coming to school on these days. PE kits should remain in school all the time in case they are needed. They will be sent home for washing every half term.
Water bottles should be clearly labelled with your child's name; theywill stay in school all week, then be sent home on Fridays for a good clean. Please make sure they come back on Monday morning.
Our First Week: 6th-8th September 2017
We have had a lovely start to the new year, exploring the classroom and getting used to our new routines. We know where our pegs are, where to keep our water bottles and our book bags! We have had lots of fun playing in all the learning areas and sharing stories and songs. Can't wait for the rest of the year!
Life education bus: 13th September 2017
The Life Education bus visited us today, with Guy and his friend Harold the Giraffe. We learnt about bones, muscles and blood, and where to find different parts inside our bodies. We learnt how to keep healthy, and what to do if we are feeling sad. Typical comments from children were 'awesome', and 'I don't want to get off the bus!' We were really proud of the way that our new Butterflies engaged with the activities and behaved.
This week we have learnt the phonemes (sounds) i n m d, and the tricky words 'is' and 'the'. Please check out this video and look out for these sounds and words when reading with your child.
Our Scarecrow: The BFG! 22nd September 2017
All this week Butterflies have been busy stuffing old stockings to fill our fantastic school scarecrow, based on the BFG, which is taking part in the Ollerton Scarecrow Festival this weekend. We hope you like him. We think he is gloriumptious!
STOP PRESS! Our scarecrow won the village competition! Well done to all our stuffers in Butterflies, and to everyone who contributed, and especially to Mrs Callender for organising and creating our super BFG!
