Welcome to Butterfly class! Our teacher is Mrs Eddison, who has been teaching at Bedwell for 6 years and is great at helping us to develop our own ideas, games and play. We are also supported by our fantastic teaching assistants, Mrs Prosho, Miss Davis and Mrs Hill.

Our latest news:
The Gingerbread Man - We’ve enjoyed reading and exploring our focus book, The Gingerbread Man. We started off by making our own gingerbread people – luckily they didn’t run away! We have enjoyed acting out and retelling the story, and have begun innovating the story to make it our own.
Child Initiated Learning - we have had the chance to try out a huge range of activities linked to learning, our own individual interests and our focus story . As a result we have developed and widened our friendship circles, enabling us to engage with our environment and improve our speaking and listening skills. Many of us have made fantastic progress because of this. We always look forward to finding out what new activities and challenges have appeared in our classrooms each day and are also keen to find new ways to explore, use and play with the equipment and resources around us.
Communication & Language - Throughout the term, we will be learning to be good listeners, developing our ability to use spoken language to share our feelings, ideas and experiences. We will be encouraged to speak in full sentences at all times, making sure that we use the right tense (past, present or future) and sensible vocabulary. We will also be broadening our vocabulary through stories, asking and answering questions about the texts we have met and trying to use because and and to link ideas.
Personal, Social & Emotional Learning - We will make sure that we are talking to our friends whilst playing, always using kind words and trying to develop relationships. We will be encouraged to add storylines to our play, and to share these ideas with others. We will try to improve the way we work together to keep our environment tidy.
Physical Development - In our weekly PE sessions, we will be developing our spatial awareness, finding space, moving towards and away from each other, and travelling and stopping with control. We will also continue to practise throwing and catching using balls and beanbags. We will be encouraged to develop our self-help skills by getting changed by ourselves, put on our own coat and shoes and becoming more independent.
