Welcome to the Butterfly Room
We would like to say a huge welcome to our new children and their families starting their journey with us in January! We are so excited to be welcoming you all and can't wait to get to know you all! We are going to be starting off the new year learning all about 'The Gruffalo' story, learning our new routines and exploring and learning a variety of new skills throughout our play! We can't wait to get started!
If you have any questions and queries please don’t
hesitate to speak to any of the Butterfly Room staff!
Due to the recent Lockdown some of us are remote learning from home, we will be adding daily challenges to our page for you to have a go at home! We would love to see you trying these out and you can upload this by clicking on the bottom of this page and sending a note or photo this way.
If you are unsure how to use this please get in touch and we will be happy to help!
18.01.21 Todays's Challenge is - Can you play hide and seek and see who can hide the longest without being found? Can you take turns with your grown up and siblings too?
In the Butterfly room, Shelley is the room lead and works in the room alongside Danielle.
If you have any queries or questions please don't hesitate to speak to one of us or drop Shelley an email at the address below!
Session times are 8:45am to 11:45am.
If someone different is collecting your child please inform school as soon as possible and make sure the person collecting brings their I.D and knows the correct password please!
You will have the opportunity to look at and contribute to your child's Learning Journey throughout the year and can ask to see this at anytime.
Each day your child will need to bring a named coat, bag and spare clothes. As the weather is becoming very changeable, we would really appreciate it if you could bring suitable clothes ready for any changes!
We go outside whatever the weather so children need to be changed frequently. Please ensure you send a named bag with plenty of spare clothes in, especially if your child is potty training.
If your child wears nappies or pull ups please send these AND wipes in a named bag each day.
Dates for the Diary!
Monday 4th January - School re-opens
Dates will be added to this regularly so please come back soon to check for more dates being added.
How you can help at home (Article 18)
There are lots of things that you can do at home to support your child at home.
Singing is such an important part of Early Years education, it supports speech, language, mathematical awareness and early reading.
We do encourage all children to use words instead of actions to make their wants and needs known. It is helpful if you continue this at home by encouraging talk and extending vocabulary for example if your child says "car" you could extend this by saying "yes, it's a big, red car".
When out shopping you could encourage your child to create their own shopping list. This list might be a lot of marks on paper but to your child it will be exactly what they say it is. Encourage your child to remember what they wanted to put on there " have we got everything on your list?"
If you would like to find out more about how you can help at home please speak to your child's key person.
Thank you for your support
