Butterfly - Ms Wright

Welcome to the Butterfly Class page!

Welcome to Butterfly Class' webpage. Here you will find information about the school week and what we are learning, as well as links to useful websites and tips to support your child's learning at home. We firmly believe that children make the best progress when we work in partnership with you, so please feel free to contact us with any questions. Our class page will be updated regularly, so please be sure to check often for any updates. 


The Butterfly class is led by myself, Ms Wright. Next door the Bumblebee class is led by Mrs Kindred. We are supported by three fabulous teaching assistants - Miss Golding, Miss Hawkins and Miss Bell. Your child will have the opportunity to work with all the team, who will lead activities and support them throughout the day. 

Key information about the school week:

The school day begins at 8.45am and finishes at 3.15pm. Teachers will be available before and after school, so please approach us or email with any questions or concerns. Appointments can be made if a longer discussion is required. Please support us by arriving punctually and encouraging your child to come into school independently. 


Forest School

Every Monday morning children will haver a forest school session led by Ms Denny.  Children should come dressed in "forest school" clothes - these will need to be ‘old clothes’ that the children are allowed to get dirty in. They should bring plenty of layers, to allow for changing temperatures. Even in the summer, the woodland can be chilly due to the shade. They always need to have long sleeves and trousers to avoid scratches etc. They will need a waterproof coat and if your child has their own waterproof trousers or waterproof suit at home then please send them in.

Children will also need a pair of wellington boots or alternative supportive footwear that the children are allowed to get dirty and have good grip, such as walking boots or shoes.



Your child will have one PE session a week on Tuesday.  Children come into school dressed in the PE kit on that day. Long hair should be tied up and earrings removed or covered with tape. 


Personal belongings

Please ensure that your child has a clearly labelled water bottle. Your child will have free flow access to the outdoor area so we ask that your child has appropriate clothing for the weather (coats in the winter and hats and sun cream in the summer). We also ask that your child leaves any toys at home. Please ensure that all belongings are clearly labelled so that any misplaced items can be returned to your child. 



We will provide a  healthy snack in the morning (either fruit or vegetables) and offer the children milk in the afternoon.  We appreciate your support in providing the children with water in their bottles and talk to them about the importance of making healthy choices with our diet.  Having water in their bottles also means we are able to refill bottles during the day.


Teeth brushing: This term we will begin our teeth-brushing programme in class.  We will discuss the importance of good oral hygiene and a balanced healthy diet and children will be supervised to brush their teeth everyday for 2 minutes after lunch.
