Welcome to Bumblebee Class


A warm welcome to Bumblebee Class and we all agree that it's wonderful to be back. The children have settled back into the routine of school life and have enjoyed seeing their friends and making new ones. Our teacher is Mrs. Herring and Mell, Penny and Hazell are our wonderful Teaching Assitants who work with us throughout the week.



Please read our termly newsletter to find out about our learning this term.


Reading Books

In Bumblebee Class we love to read so, each child will have a reading book and a reading diary to take home with them at the end of each day. Please can you make sure that your child brings their book bag into school every day. In order to support your child please try to hear them read every day at home and remember to record it in their reading diary. This evidence of having read at home four times or more enables your child to earn a leaf towards a reward.


Homework and Spellings

We will send home Number Club and Spelling Homework on a Friday. This is a great opportunity for the children to practise their skills in their Home Learning Book.


PE Kits

Please can the children have a PE kit in school every week ready for our PE sessions. They will need dark shorts, a plain white t'shirt and trainers. All earrings should be removed and hair needs to be tied up.


Please contact me if you have any concerns or queries.


Thank you for supporting your child with their learning.

Book Week at Roundhill

We started the week by reading Mr. Wolf's Pancakes written and illustrated by Jan Fearnley. In the story Mr Wolf gets into lots of trouble making pancakes! We then made pancakes at home for lunch and in school we tried them with lots of different toppings! They were yummy!

On Tuesday we listened to Ed Vere read Bedtime for Monsters. Ed wrote the story and he is also the illustrator. He then showed us how to draw the monster. Here are our monsters.


On Wednesday we listened to The Snail and the Whale which is written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. We then made puppets of the snail or the whale and used them to help retell the story. We also made story boxes which tell part of the story depicting our favourite scenes. Here are our boxes.
Thursday was World Book Day and we dressed up as our favourite book characters. Can you guess who we are?
On Friday, we finished the week by listening to our favourite class story Stickman which is also written by Julia Donaldson. We then chose our favourite book and using a potato we designed and made the main character. Here are our potato characters.

Happy learning everyone. Please stay safe, keep well and I look forward to us all being back in school together again.

In Bumblebee Class we love to read and we are all becoming confident readers so, a big thank you to everyone at home for your support. Please remember to sign the reading record each time you hear your child read. Don't forget you need to read at least 4 times each week to get a reading leaf. Each leaf you earn will give you a chance to win a prize in our end of term draw!


Homework will be sent out in homework books on a Friday. This will include spellings to practise and a Number Club maths sheet. Homework books need to be back in school by the following Thursday.


This year at Roundhill we are learning through 'Enquiry'. This is a new approach to our learning and you will see us being Authors, Artists, Engineers, Geographers, Historians, Linguists, Mathematicians, Musicians, Philosophers and Scientists.


PE will be on a Thursday morning and we will be swimming in terms 3 and 4. Please can you make sure that your child has their PE kit in school each week ready for their session. Dark shorts, a plain white t-shirt and trainers are needed. All earrings should be removed and hair tied up.


If you have any concerns or questions please come and speak to us.  

World Book Day

Our theme for World Book Day was Traditional Tales. We dressed up as characters from our favourite stories.

How to Catch a Goblin

Strange things have been happening in our classroom! We think we might have a goblin living somewhere in Bumblebee Classroom. We decided to design and make a trap and then we wrote instructions on How to Catch a Goblin. We worked in teams and here are our designs.


Bunny Bounce

Here are our 2020 Bunny Bouncers. Well done to Jacob for bouncing 212 times in 2 minutes - AMAZING!
