Welcome to Butterfly Class!
The class teacher is Miss Dennett and the teaching assistant based in Butterfly is Mr Fuller.
We have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Academic year 2023-24
We ask that the children practise spellings and read every day. We also ask the class to use Times Table Rockstars (Times Tables Rock Stars: Play (ttrockstars.com)) three times a week.
Year 4s have homework books and should complete one reading task per week. Homework books are given out on a Friday afternoon and should be returned on a Wednesday morning.
Maths and English Resources
Reading is so important!
We encourage you to listen to your child read and discuss the text at least three times a week. Sometimes it is hard to know what to ask them so below is some ideas of the type of questions that you could be asking your child whilst they are reading with you.
Being able to recall the times tables is a huge skill and will have benefits across all areas of the Maths curriculum. In Year 3, the expectation is that children can recall their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 10 times table up to 12. Make sure that your child is practising their times tables regularly at home both verbally and written.

At Banwell the children's wellbeing is always our priority and this year we are making mental well being a focus. Below is a link to the 'Wheel of Wellbeing' website that has some interesting information and activities to help with this.
