Class 2 (Butterflies)

Welcome to Class 2's page!

Welcome to Class 2 - also known as Butterfly Class. This year, we are lucky enough to have  year 1, 2 and 3 children. We are taught by our wonderful teacher Mrs Buckthought. Mrs Dauncey and Miss Downs are our fabulously supportive teaching assistants. We have lots of fun, laughter, learning adventures and exciting opportunities to explore new learning.  We are also a very caring and friendly group of children , who look out for each other. In fact, our whole school is a caring and welcoming school -which I am sure you already know as you are a part of our family.  
Do you know where Kampong Ayer is?  We have been identifying similarities and differences between their homes and ours. We have been recognising how the weather affects our lives and weather patterns associated with the four seasons. We are looking forward to learning about Sir Francis Drake, The great Fire of London and all our science investigations. Do you like to get messy and mucky but also be creative with clay, pastels and modroc?  If so, then Butterfly Class is definitely the place to be! During your time in our class, these are just a few of the learning experiences you will get to enjoy.  
Mrs Buckthought, our teacher,  supports us to become confident and unique members of her class.  She loves for us to blossom and grow as individuals who enjoy leading their own learning - even if it might not be what she had planned for that day! Everything she plans helps us to develop our key learning dispositions: resilience, curiosity, independence, collaboration and reflective.  These dispositions help us on our learning journey throughout our time at Werrington.  Oh - and guess what - Mrs Buckthought even likes it if  you make mistakes  - she says it is good to make a mistake as it helps us to learn.  So never be afraid to have a go, to try your best, be brave and get stuck in as there are so many people here to help you grow and fly as a learner. In fact, she wants you to be just like a butterfly, emerging from your chrysalis and flying free as you experience all that we have to offer at Werrington.
We love books - any type of book.  We are currently  reading Mr Skip (all about a magical gnome who was found in a skip) .  We have a whole school reading competition each week and the class with the highest percentage of readers gets a  reward. We have won quiet a few times and have had rewards such as ice cream (with sprinkles), time to play with Playdoh, hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows, extra play and a short film. We keep Mrs Buckthought busy thinking up new rewards. We also have 'Love to Read time'.
You will find out that Mrs Buckthought will do anything she can to inspire and motivate us to be fabulous life long learners.

 We are now using Class Dojo to share our learning with family members. If you have a login please have a look to see what we are up to in class.
