Foundation Stage - Spider & Butterfly Class

Half Term week

This week there won’t be any daily challenges. We would like you to keep reading and spelling your key words. If we were in school we would have started by learning to spell the teddy words and work through the cards in order. Also keep practising your handwriting working on the different letter groups (caterpillars, robots, ladders and zig zags). You could write a sentence a day about what you are getting up to in half term.

In Maths please continue to play Maths games using cards, ordering numbers, missing numbers. I will attach a few links to Maths games and ideas you can use. 

Also remember to log on to Bug Club and Phonics Play to help with your reading a phonics.

Week beginning 13th April

Hi Spiders, Butterflies, parents and carers.

I hope the Easter bunny came to your houses! Did you eat lots of chocolate? 

This week we won’t be adding daily challenges. We would like you to practice reading keywords (all of the picture cards from the teddy on) and then writing them. Also please keep practising your handwriting including your name, in the groups (caterpillars, robots, ladders and zig-zags). Writing a sentence a day will also help maybe using the keywords.

In maths please could you learn and practise numbers to 20 and beyond if you can. You can order forwards and back with number cards and orally. Please practice part part whole, splitting 5 in all the different ways then numbers 6 7 8 9 and 10. 

Please read the books on Bug Club too. 


We will be adding a quiz on today with some questions, have some fun answering them and please as always upload to Tapestry.

Other ideas for home learning

Welcome to Foundation Stage

The grown ups in Spider class are Mrs Phillips and Mrs Clist

The grown ups in Butterfly class are Mrs Sykes and Mrs Furze


Please encourage your child to be independent in putting their own coats on and zipping or buttoning them up. 

Please ensure drinks bottles are not put in book bags. 




  • Please ensure ALL uniform is named and encourage independence in getting dressed and undressed, putting on coats, doing up zips etc.
  • Please could any borrowed clothes be returned as our spare clothes supplies are low. Any donations would also be gratefully received, particularly boys trousers.
  • Can I remind you that the children bring in their own book bags, coats etc at the bell at 8.50. We request that drinks bottles are not put in book bags as leakages may damage books. Children with tidy book bags will receive house points.
  • If anyone different is picking your child up please can you inform a member of staff in the morning, otherwise inform the office. Whoever is picking your child up will need to be on the contact list.
  • Please continue to check the class whiteboards and the website or Facebook for any messages.
  • If you have any worries/concerns please come and see the teachers at the end of the school day or request an appointment.
  • Thursday mornings please come in and share a book with your child from 8.30am.
  • Don’t forget to look at your child’s learning on Tapestry.  You are also able to add any exciting events and learning that happens at home.  If appropriate we do share this with the class. It also gives us a rounded picture of your child’s all round development and interests.


 Thank you for your continued support with your child’s education and we look forward to a successful term.
