The Butterfly Room
Led by Mrs Martin, our qualified teacher, our Butterfly Room is for our older 3 year olds and our 4 year olds.
A very busy room, with many areas to discover and learn through play, our Butterfly room is colourful, inviting and spacious.
With lots of focus on early reading and writing skills we have great fun with storytelling and role play.
We become experts by practising our letters and sounds with Phase 1 phonics every day.
We learn through songs, rhymes and music every day which is always a good opportunity to practice our groovy moves.
We communicate in many different ways and always enjoy learning new words in Makaton.
Our constantly changing topics allows us to offer access to many different resources, with our equipment and toys all helping to develop our fine and gross motor skills.
As many children in this room are in their final academic year before Primary School, we promote independence and resilience and work towards ‘school readiness’ in various ways.
When it’s time for us to send you on to Primary school for your new adventure we offer a strong support program to make the transition to ‘big’ school as smooth as possible.
Weekly Forest School, PE sessions and lots of outside play also help our physical development.
We always make time to get creative with plenty of messy play and crafts and amazing artwork to take home and treasure forever.
Most importantly we strive to ensure that our VIP’s have fun every day.
In such challenging times we are especially aware of the need to support emotional health and wellbeing.
Every child that comes to Little Crickets is a unique and amazing individual full of imagination.
