Butterflies class is one of our two Year 2 classes, where our children are in their final year of Key Stage 1. During year two, we aim to support the development of independence both academically and personally. Children work hard in year two and they will become much more fluent in their reading and known facts related to number. These are the building blocks for future learning and we value the support of parents to help develop fluency in reading and number bonds/ times tables facts. We have high expectations of our children but we also have large amounts of fun along the way!
On this page you will find lots of useful information about what we are up to in class, as well as how children's learning can be supported at home, both from a parent's perspective, as well as how children can learn independently at home in their spare time. We hope you find it useful.

Welcome back after another lockdown. Hopefully, this one will be the last. Our topic is castles - The Norman Invasion. There will be a focus on history with links to all the other subjects in particular Design & Technology, Science and English. In addition to this, given the unusual circumstances this year, for the Spring term, we will be continuing to plan a long term and effective approach to support the children in moving forwards both academically but prioritising their emotional wellbeing and mental health and target the needs of our children We recognise that the past several months may have disrupted and affected many lives, and some more than others. In response to the needs of our community, we have written and developed a bespoke and robust programme to support our children. This will be in place from when your child returns to school and the impact will be reviewed on a regular basis. Please also take a look at our well-being section of our website.
