We have had such a wonderful day. Firstly, the children were amazing as they went on a 2.5 mile walk today. They learnt and saw so much about their local environment and were super stars. When we returned to school we created a map of our walk, looking at the main features of the environment of the route we took. We also created some art work using things we found on our walk. Enjoy the photos.
We have been enjoying our new computing topic 'We are rhythmic'. We have used the programme Chrome Music Lab to create our own piece of music. Please have a listen and enjoy!
Happy half term!
Just a little request, as part of our English next week we will be creating an information text about a famous person of our choice. During the half term can you think of who you would like to create a fact page about an email the butterflies account so I can start collecting some information for you. If you would like to bring in any books or information into school on Monday that would be fab! You may want to write about a singer, an artist, author, sports person or actor. That is up to you. Enjoy and I cant wait to receive your emails.
This term in computing we have been working on animations. We looked at all the tools to use and how to create our own animation. We have been working hard to create some wonderful animations that you can find on our purple mash login.

Wow, what a wonderful term we have had in the Butterflies. We have been so busy but I think our biggest achievement is our beautiful Christmas Carol Concert that we performed to you in the hall. It has been such a lovely term and the children have made us exceptionally proud. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Finally, we would like to say thank you so much for all our lovely cards and gifts.
Take care and stay safe

Butterflies class had great fun during STEM week. We enjoyed our visit from Mr and Mrs Blair and we learnt a lot about the environment and we also made a torch. Butterflies also used newspaper to make clothes and modelled them in a fashion show!

Just a note
We have loved receiving all of the lovely show and tell items; however, we only have 10 minutes twice a week for show and tell so not all children get to have their turn. We encourage you to only bring in one show and tell every fortnight to allow opportunities for all children to have their turn. We would like to have time for Story time too!
