Butterflies Nursery Teachers / Butterflies Teaching Assistants

 Butterflies Nursery staff  are looking forward to welcoming you and your children to our class. We have  set up our  classroom for the children to have fun while learning in a safe environment. We have a construction area, home corner role play area, small world play including a dolls house, cars and train track. We also have a reading den, mark making area,  sand, painting and playdough areas. We also do lots of learning outdoors in our lovely outside area.

Our session times are  8.45am to 11.45am and 12.15 to 3.10pm.


Children will be welcomed at the Nursery door when they arrive, and enter independently.  They will be registered and if  staying for lunch will be given the days choices.  Pack lunches will be collected in the box at the door. The children will then be given the opportunity to go to play at their chosen activities in the classroom. We have a short class learning together time – for activities such as encouraging Communication and Language, getting to know each other, Literacy and Maths. The children may then choose to play in  Butterflies, outdoors or in the Ladybirds Reception classroom. Every day we share a story together. Children will exit from the Butterflies classroom door again at the end of their session to meet their parent.

We have a fun PE session on Friday mornings so children wear sporty clothes and trainers for school on a Friday.

We will be learning a varied curriculum, with a good focus on the Prime Areas of Learning which are communication and language, personal, social and emotional development and physical development.

Summer term 2024

Our learning this half term is focused on ‘Ready, Steady, grow’ ,  followed by ‘Creep. crawl and wriggle’ . We  will be learning through play and exploration  looking at how things grow and where our food comes from. We will think about the farms in the local area and the shops we use. We will plant seeds and talk about what they need to grow. We will use poems, stories and nursery rhymes to explore minibeasts.   In mathematic sessions we will continue to practise our counting and subitising skills as well as exploring a range of 2D and 3D Shapes..

Our second half term we will be enjoying  learning about  ‘On the Beach’ followed by ‘Moving On’ . These themes will see us learning about the seashore and the oceans and then thinking about our transition to the next school year. We are looking forward to some exciting learning over the next few months.
