Homework will be sent out on Friday and needs to be returned the following Wednesday.

It is also essential that all children read every day. This can be a mixture of you reading to them and them reading to you.

Reading at Home

Your child needs to read at home every day. They will need to record their own reading each time. Please sign each read in their Reading Journal and on their special reading bookmark so that they can be in with the chance of this term's reward!

PE Lessons 

Please remember that Butterworth's PE lessons are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Children need to come to school in their PE kits on these days.

Our day in Butterworth Class

Morning task

We start the day with either a writing or maths activity. Once the children have put their bags and coats away, they independently get on with this task.


As writers we will be writing a narrative based on 'The Real Story of the Three Little Pigs' by Jon Scieszka. Later in the term we will developing our non-fiction writing by writing an explanation based on 'Street beneath my Feet' by Charlotte Guillain and Yuval Zommer.


We follow Jane Considine’s spelling scheme. These lessons consist of various spelling investigations and great activities to help the children with their spellings. 


In Butterworth Class, we follow the letter join handwriting scheme. Every day we have a session building towards joined up handwriting. 


As mathematicians, we will be developing our understanding of Place Value and Addition & Subtraction.

Guided reading

In guided reading, we use Bug Club and we will be looking at a range of different texts that will support our comprehension. 

Religious Education (R.E.)

In R.E we are exploring the question: How special is the relationship Jews have with God?


During the afternoons the children will have sessions covering PE, History, Science, PSHE, Music, French, DT or Computing.
