Welcome to Butterflies Class
Welcome to our class page! Mrs Ansermoz teaches us on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Miss Peace teaches us on a Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday. Miss Middlebrook also supports our learning in class. We love to work as a team and love to challenge ourselves to be curious. We try our best and have a positive attitude. We take care of each other and make sure our class is a great place to be.
PE lessons are on a Monday and on a Friday with our PE teacher, Mr Tanner. Please ensure that PE kit is worn to school on these days.
Children are expected to read every day at home (this may be independently or to an adult). Children need to also practise their spellings and times tables a couple of times a week. See below for ideas for practising spellings and timetables. Children also have access to Times Tables Rock Stars .
We have added some additional homework challenged to the MTP which should be handed in before the end of the half term.
Here at Stoke Gabriel School we use the Accelerated Reader program to monitor children's independent reading once the children have completed our phonics programme (Phonics Bug).
Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps teachers manage and monitor children's independent reading and comprehension. Your child selects and reads a book at their pace. When they have finished the children takes a short quiz to assess their reading and comprehension skills.
Below is a link to the Accelerated Reader website specifically for our school. Your children know their logins and we provide all children who use AR with a bookmark holding all the necessary details.
If you're unsure whether a book from home is on Accelerated Reader then please visit the AR Bookfinder site below to search for yourself. It is not just books from our school library that are available for quizzing!
