Brilliant Butterflies

Welcome to Reception’s home page!

This half term we will be looking at important people and their roles. We will also be looking at what makes us special and unique. The children will learn through play and will spend a lot of time outside, so please send your child with appropriate outdoor wear including wellies as we will go out whatever the weather.


We will record the children’s achievements on tapestry. If you have not already activated your account please do so or speak to a member of the team for support with this.

Please sign up to Class Dojo as this is a great way to communicate with the class teacher.

We will put lots of  pictures and videos on of what the children are doing in school. This is also where you can share pictures of things are you doing at home. We have emailed a link to all parents. please check your inbox and spam. Thank you.

Read Write Inc

To support your child with the phonics knowledge we will be sending home reading books. Please ensure you are reading with them every day at home and return their reading books every Friday to be changed in school.

Here is the link to the Read Write Inc website for more information:
