Welcome to the Butterfly Room
We would like to give a huge welcome to you all and we hope you have all had an excellent Summer! We are starting the year as a new room, which will now be called the butterfly room, this new adventure will see the 2 year olds and three year olds come together in one setting. We are very excited to start the new term and our topic for Autumn 1 is ‘All About Me’. We will be discovering more about ourselves and each other, through activities such as painting self portraits and a whole lot more. We have set up the role play area into a house and we cant wait for the children to come in and explore!
If you have any questions and queries please don’t
hesitate to speak to any of the Butterfly Room staff!
In the Butterfly room, Shelley is the room lead and works in the room alongside Danielle, Kirsty, Rebecca, Abby and Fiona. Some of the staff will be in setting on different days which will be listed on the parent information board in the Butterfly room porch.
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 8.45-11.45 and 12.15-3.15.
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.

Healthy Teeth and Dummy Workshop - RR Article 31
On Thursday 6th June we held a healthy teeth and dummy workshop, we were very excited as the dummy fairy came to visit us and told us all about how she collects dummies for little babies in the world. We were all asked if we could donate any dummies and bottles in return from a small gift from the fairy! We are overwhelmed by the response and were so proud of all the children who donated dummies to the dummy fairy!
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
