“In Butterflies we spread our wings and soar”
My name is Mrs Hearity and I am so excited to be your teacher this year. We’re very lucky in Butterflies because we have a mixed class; we have 17 Year One children and 6 Reception aged children.
We have so much fun in Butterflies. We practise our phonics every day, and work really hard on improving our number knowledge. We also learn science, geography, history, art and more. If you would like to find out what we’ll be learning, and when, you can look at the Curriculum section of the website.
Our class routine is as follows:
Library sessions will take place every Monday morning. Children will have the opportunity to select their own book and take it home to read.
Children will be given a reading book and will be listened to by either the class teacher or class teaching assistant on a weekly basis. Please support your child with their reading and spend ten minutes a day reading of an evening time. Please return books on a Wednesday with a written comment.
Our P.E. lessons take place on a Tuesday. Please make sure your child wears a red or white t shirt and red or black shorts. Children can wear a tracksuit if the weather is a little chilly.
Every Friday Year One children will be given spellings to learn, ready for next Friday’s spelling test. Children will also receive some practical or written homework via Seesaw.
Finally, please ensure children’s names are written inside their jumpers, coats, shoes and cardigans.
Thanks for reading,
Mrs Hearity, Miss O’Dowd, Miss Sweeney and Mrs Banks
