Hello all,

Hope you are well!

Just a little update about RWI: there are now ‘hold a sentence’ videos available each day. It would be great for your child to complete these. It is clear to see that children who have participated in the RWI videos, at home, have maintained  and made progress. This is apparent in the sample of children who have attended school recently. The hold a sentence videos are extremely beneficial for your child: it gives them strategies about how to manage writing sentences.

Please remember that the activities available are not compulsory, but I must request that RWI is completed daily, as a minimum,  to ensure that your child is able to access the Y1 curriculum.

All the best!

We miss you all!

Hello and welcome back to Summer Term 2nd.

This term will bring with it changes and challenges, but I am confident with your continued support that we will quickly adapt to the new norm.

Our theme for this term is ‘Under the Sea’. This will cover discovering sea creatures, becoming pirates and exploring the seaside.

We will start the topic properly next week; therefore, this week we will explore the season Summer, and we will have activities which will prepare your child for their return to school.

Team Butterflies miss you all so much, we can’t wait to see you very soon.

Phonics General Activity Shopping Pirate Fairytale Story

Dear Parents,

I have started to make phone calls home as a way to check-in with your child. Please be patient, as I can only make the calls when I am in school, and I have 41 to complete.  I really look forward to catching up with you.  The phone call is not to check up with how much school work is being completed. It is a well-being check in and a chance for me to chat to your child (and you).

I appreciate all the effort you have put in to working with your child at home. Please do not worry about the amount work that you have completed. I provide a range of activities for you to do-if you wish. There is no expectation for you to compete it all. If your child is lacking in motivation, please do not force them to work to a point where you both feel overwhelmed. Your child is working from home; if they were in school, their motivation would be different for many reasons. Please maintain phonics (as a bare minimum ). Allow them to play lots, and don’t feel guilty if they are watching a little more TV than normal.

Apologies, for not attaching the Nrich activity yesterday. It is now with today’s work.

Take care,

Miss Forbes.

Wednesday 25.03.20

Hello parents and children, 

I have been reflecting on the process of home learning, and thinking about the realities of you adjusting to family life and setting up some sort of routine, which is sustainable long term as opposed to short term. 

You might be finding this week tricky. I know I am, in terms of getting my head around the concept of managing my time and being productive at home. 

Top tips:

  • They are not meant to sit at a table for a long period of time (15-20 minutes max). 
  • Work with them at times when they have the most energy; for example, in the morning. 
  • Allow them plenty of time to play independently: this is good for them and for you. 
  • Get them moving and doing exercise at various points of the day. 
  • Don’t be afraid to change the activities to suit your child’s interests. Use my activities and inputs as guidelines or examples of how to teach the skill. If you notice that your child is interested in different things, incorporate these interests when you are teaching your child the skill. Going with your child’s interests, ensures that they are hooked and engaged. 

Going forward:

  •  Daily, you will receive a phonics PPT (school website).
  • Your child will participate in an RWI online session. 
  • On Monday and Wednesday you will receive a maths focus task (Tapestry app)
  • On Tuesday and Thursday you will receive a literacy focus task (Tapestry app)
  • Every day you will get a challenge which aims to cover the other prime and specific areas (Tapestry app).

Kind regards,



Home Learning 24.03.2020

Hello parents and children,                                                                                        23 3 30

I hope you are well and have had a ‘relaxing’ weekend.

This is our phonics lesson for today Butterflies Phonics 23 3 20

Parents Guidance Butterflies Parents info

The literacy and maths work will be sent through tapestry.

It is important to note that Maths and literacy are only 2 of the specific areas, which your child must master, in order to achieve their Early Learning goals. Keeping that in mind, your child will be sent a range of activities which will further develop the other areas.

This is the link to the EYFS Framework, which underpins my planning.

This document explains what the prime and specific areas area and shows the developmental progression in each area. Your child is working within the 40-60 section and the Early Learning goals.

I will update you further with an outline of the theme for the next two weeks. Thank you for your patience. What I had planned, now needs tweaking as there are limitations of what can be done around the home during a time where you cannot just pop out for bits and bobs.

Kind regards,

EYFS Team.
