Butterfly Class have enjoyed finding out about plants and minibeasts this term. We have been out in the garden exploring the changes to plants and looking for minibeasts to observe! We have learnt about the different parts of plants. We have been growing our own bean seeds. We have been looking after some caterpillars and finding out about the changes that happen as they grow!

We have also been busy learning all about number bonds to 10 in Numeracy.
We have enjoyed learning how to programme the beebots to follow instructions.
Butterfly Class have been showing how well they have developed their skills at working collaboratively this term. Collaboration is one of our school values. In Butterfly Class, we have been learning and playing together in all areas of learning. When we support each other and work together, we are able to solve problems and learn new things.
