Hello Crocodiles and Elephants,
Over Half Term the butterflies have emerged from their chrysalises. I have now let them go.
Have a look at the pictures and videos.
What do they look like? Where do you think they have gone now?
Could you write a sentence about what they look like and where you think they might have gone? Remember to use your phonics strips, finger space sticks, tricky words mats and to try and use a conjunction to create an extended sentence. I look forward to seeing your ideas!
Please also choose a phonics game from Education City or Espresso to play too.
Today we would like you to make a butterfly! Can you draw a circle for the head, a sausage shape for the body. You then need to draw around your hand 4 times and then cut them out or ask a grown up to cut it out for you. You then need to stick the pieces together to make your butterfly. Now you need to decorate your butterfly. You could paint the wings, create patterns with crayons or coloured pencils, you could use stickers, or decorate with flowers in the garden. Be as creative as you can! But remember, your butterfly wings must be symmetrical.

Children who are returning to school will be reading all of their books in school with a Teacher or Teaching Assistant as we cannot send materials home. There will be no book bags or reading journals.
For those children who are not returning to school we will allocate 2 books on Bug club on Fridays for the following week.
Remember all the books previously allocated will still be available for the children to re-read and please continue to use any other books you have at home. Children will also enjoy finding words in books you read to them as well as the environment.
Continue to use the bumblebee tricky word mat for children to recognise and read on sight and begin spelling accurately too.
