Welcome to Bumblebee Class
Class Teacher - Sarah Addicott
Teaching Assistants - Jenny Jacobs
We are very pleased to be teaching the children of Bumblebee Class!
I will be updating the page on a regular basis to let you know about the things we do and the learning that is taking place. Why not visit the Pupil Zone? There are games to play and interesting websites you can visit.
We have P.E. on Mondays and Wednesdays and I would like all children to bring their kit and daps or trainers every week. During Terms 3 and 4 the children will have swimming lessons in the school pool.
We use our outdoor learning space when appropriate and have woodland activities when possible. Please make sure your child brings a coat every day. You may like to keep a pair of wellies at school.
It would greatly help you child if you could read with him/her as often as possible, at least 4x a week. Please make sure your child has their book bag in school every day. (If you are able to spare an hour to help hear readers in school, please come and talk to us.)
Spelling is an important part of the Year 1 English curriculum. We will regularly be ending home sets of words for your child to learn to spell.
Our topic this term is 'Fire! Fire! where we will be learning about The Great Fire of London. Our creative homework project is to make an Easter Garden. Please bring these in on Friday 5th April.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
Fire of London
To start our learning about this topic, we have made some Tudor houses. We set fire to them which helped us to understand how quickly the fire spread.
The story teller who came to see us on Wednesday was brilliant and we helped her to tell a story about a sea adventure. We all dressed up on Thursday and some of us came back to school for a bedtime story.
How does your Garden grow? Wow day
We looked at a variety of vegetables and talked about which part of the plant we eat. We chopped, cooked and blended to make soup. We used our senses to explore raw vegetables and tasted some of them. Finally, we shelled and tasted peas.
Book Week at Roundhill
World Book Day
The children had a fantastic time watching the Storybox Theatre today. Rod Burnett makes all his own puppets and had the children transfixed as he told the story of The Snow Queen.
