Mrs Farmer, Mrs Jones, Mrs Allerton and Mrs Robertshaw

Hello! A very big welcome to the Butterflies Class page!

We are very fortunate here at Farnborough Road to have a fantastic nursery team. I am Butterflies class teacher, Mrs Farmer and I have been working with young children for over 20 years.  Mrs Jones is our classroom assistant; she loves the outdoor environment, painting and baking with the children. We also have Mrs Allerton as part of our team; she spends lots of time playing games with the children, helping to develop their communication skills and gain in confidence and self-esteem.

In nursery, our aim is to help all of the children reach their full potential by “Learning, Caring and achieving together”. We have a ‘Growth Mindset’ approach to learning, encouraging the children to persevere, reminding them that they can do it if they keep trying. We encourage the children to be independent learners and we continuously reward the children for their efforts and achievements with specific praise, stickers and certificates. We plan activities based upon seasonal topics and festivals as well as personalised learning; providing activities based on children’s interests, observations and assessments. We provide a safe and friendly environment, both indoors and outdoors, for the children to access resources, use their imaginations and build relationships with their peers. We will send home library and news books for you to share with your child at home and then share news back with us. We will also keep you updated on your child’s achievements through Class Dojo and our Twitter page, so please follow us! @FRISbutterflies

 We are looking forward to teaching The Butterflies Class 2020 and working with you, their parents, as we begin their learning journey together. Thank you for visiting and for your support!
