Hello and welcome to Butterfly class. We are a Reception class of 21 children with one class teacher, one HLTA and one 1:1 support assistant.

We take our learning seriously but have a lot of fun inside and outside the classroom. Bringing the learning to life, making it real and sharing the learning with our family and friends. We never forget how blessed we are to have a great school and know how important it is to try hard and enjoy ourselves.

Inside Butterfly Class

Our topic this term is: Marvellous Me.  We will learning all about ourselves, the people in our lives and the places that we live. We will taking part in weekly PE and Forest School sessions, all linked to our topic learning and is a great way for us to learn outside of the classroom. We will be introduced to a range of new phonemes and graphemes and the different ways we can use them in our play and learning. We will also be concentrating on our number and counting skills.  All of the children have settled in well to life in Butterfly Class and the wider school. Take a look at the pictures below to see all the fun we are having for yourselves!

Learning through Continuous Provision:

Forest School:

Every Wednesday we visit the Forest School and take our learning out into nature. Take a look at some of the things we do in the forest! Not only do we spend time exploring the forest but each week we complete a range of activities linked to our learning in the classroom.

Physical Activity in EYFS:

Participation in regular physical activity can have a major impact on your child’s health and wellbeing, as well as their physical development. The UK Chief Medical Officer recommends that all children age 0-5 should have at least 180 minutes of physical activity a day. Some of the things which we do in school include: 

  • Playdough Disco
  • Cosmic Kids Yoga
  • Mindfulness Sessions 
  • Weekly PE sessions and regular access to the outdoor area. 

This is just a snapshot of some of the things we do on a daily basis. Here are some ideas for physical activity that you can do at home: 


  • Go on family walks
  • Cosmic Kids Yoga 
  • Gardening 
  • Make a fun obstacle course around your house
  • Set up a family sports competition.
