Reception – Butterworth Class

Welcome to the Butterworth Class page!


Our Class Teacher is Mrs Cruise.


Did you know we are called Butterworth Class after the author Nick Butterworth? We have really enjoyed reading some of his books in class including 'One Snowy Night', 'After the Storm' and 'The Rescue Party'.




Our First Half Term


We have had a great start to Reception, getting to know our school, classroom, and grown-ups.  We have made lots of new friends too.  We have also become much more independent, we get changed for PE and go for lunch with our friends!


We have been learning about People Who Help Us.  We thought about people who help us at home, at school and out and about.  We also learnt about how to stay safe, which grown-ups we can ask for help if we have a problem and who would help us in an emergency.  We had lots of visitors and really enjoyed having a sit in a fire engine and meeting the refuse collectors.

Christmas Fun!


We had so much fun learning about Christmas and preparing for the celebration.  We also learnt that there are other Celebrations which include light, such as Bonfire Night and Diwali.

Creative Fortnight


We had a great time during creative fortnight using a variety of ways to express our ideas about our world.

Our New Learning Resources

During the first week back we had a fantastic time exploring our new indoor learning resources.

We have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly.  We had a great time making transient art butterflies and can all tell the story The Hungry Caterpillar using actions.

We have enjoyed lots of special days this half term.  We have had Chinese New Year, World Book Day, snowy days, icy days and Sports Relief Day.  We hope that you enjoy the pictures.

Happy Easter!

We have had a lovely time in the run up to Easter, we have watched Year Two's Easter assembly, seen the Easter craft competition, made Easter eggs, had an Easter egg hunt, had chocolate treats and a visit from a real life rabbit.  We were brave and stroked his silky fur.  Many thanks to Miss Gilbert for bringing him in!

Our 2017 Ofsted inspection commented - that we still provide good quality education & a stimulating & caring environment. Individual needs are well met & children quickly grow in confidence. There is a positive culture for safeguarding & pupils said that they feel happy & settled in school.

"I am amazing. Together we are magnificent!"
