Butterflies- Year 2 and 3

Welcome to the Butterfly Class

Butterfly class is a small mixed year 2 and 3 class with just 9 children. In Butterfly class, children are inquisitive, courageous and bold. The children are resilient and know that in order to excel and reach their full potential they need to take risks and challenge themselves. They are taught by Miss Bromley. 

Tuesday- Forest School
Wednesday- PE
Thursday- Y2/3 Spelling tests


Miss Bromley (Class Teacher)

A part of our timetable, every week the children go to our forest school to attend forest school lessons. Here, the children are able to build fires to cook snacks and use tools to create special forest school crafts. The children love having this opportunity and it helps to develop their skills as risk takers and problem solvers. 

In Butterfly class, we use a topic based approach in both our morning and afternoon learning. In Literacy, we focus on both fiction and non-fiction texts that link to our topic meaning that the children can apply their knowledge across multiple subjects. Our afternoon learning is based on our topic for the term! As part of our Vikings topic, the children have loved looking at history of our surrounding area and how the Vikings captured York! To support this learning, the children have recently visited the Jorvik centre.

Did you know that many of York's street names come from the Vikings? For example, Skeldergate. 'Gate' comes from the Norse word meaning street and 'Skelder' means shield makers, so Skeldergate was the street of shield makers!
