Welcome to Buttermere!
Buttermere Class – This is our Early Years Class – children in Nursery and Reception are taught by Miss Irwin and are supported by Miss Scott and Miss Orr.
Here in Buttermere Class we strive to create an inclusive and nurturing, learning rich environment. Where children enjoy fun learning activities alongside learning through play and exploring in our indoor and outdoor areas.
In Buttermere class we plan our learning from children's interests, making learning more meaningful to the children and meaning that their curiosity is constantly being sparked.
In school we encourage children to read at least 3 times a week at home- if they do, they will be entered into the weekly reading raffle and be in with a chance of winning a prize! Children in Buttermere class will be sent home with a new book every Friday and are asked to return them the following Friday.
Our PE days this half term are Mondays and Tuesdays. Please can all children come to school in their PE kits on these days.
Buttermere visited Whinlatter Forest for some Christmas themed fun! The children used natural forest materials to create their own Christmas ornaments, before enjoying a hot chocolate in the cosy yurt. We then went for a winter walk in the snow to find the Gruffalo, where we decorated him and helped get him ready for Christmas! After this, we had some hungry tummies, so we headed back to the yurt for our lunch…where we were joined by a very special visitor….Santa!! All of the children were really excited to see him and had lots of great questions to ask. We then had a play in the snow and some of the children worked together to build a snowman.
