It's been all about our Super Senses this week hasn't it Bumblebees! We have had a great week beginning to explore our five senses - starting with smell and taste!
Our teachers brought in lots of smelly liquids for us to try and identify, some were nice and sweet and some were super smelly! The next day we had a tasting session and tried little bits of different foods. Some of them were yummy and made our tummies rumble but some of them were sour and made us pull a funny face! 

We have been trying really hard in our PE lessons too, we have thought about different ways that we can move our bodies. Then we explored different speeds that we can run at, sometimes we went slow but other times we went very fast!
In our Spiritual Development session we thought about what makes a good friend. We then shared all our ideas and made sure that every Bumblebee knew what to do to be a good friend, we had lots of lovely ideas!

Don't forget, we can only change our reading books on TUESDAYS and FRIDAYS. Our Home Learning book doesn't need to come back to school until the last week of term. This weeks' home learning is in the Year 1 or Year 2 section of the home learning page.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Miss Ottaway, Mrs Horne and Mrs Pickford

What a super busy week we have had Bumblebees! 
This week we have started to think about our Maths and Literacy learning again. We have completed lots of table top team activities and have shown our wonderful independent skills through some quizzes with our teachers. Miss Ottaway, Mrs Horne and Mrs Pickford have been really impressed with us and are already whizzing through their stash of super stickers!

In the afternoons we have begun to explore our Topic and Science themes.
We came into class one afternoon and found peas had been scattered everywhere! It was very messy! Then we found a cape, mask and belt, we thought carefully and decided they must all belong to a superhero! It turned out that Super Daisy had been into our classroom! We then read her story and found out that she had defeated the evil Planet Pea and saved the Earth! Phew! We enjoyed working together as a team to create props from the story for our display.

We haven't stopped there though! We have also explored our bodies, and carefully labelled body parts. We began the week thinking of funny places for our elbows but now we know which part of the body they are! Did you know that even if you are not called Adam, a boy still has an Adam's Apple!

We have even found time for some PE, RE and Spiritual Development! We really have had a busy week!

Take a look at our pictures below, have a lovely rest Bumblebees, you deserve it!

Welcome Back! - Welcome Back Newsletter

Wow Bumblebees! What a jam packed first two days we have had back at school! It has been wonderful to see so many of you! We are so proud of how you have come back to us as if you had never been away!

Parents and families, we hope you have not missed your little ones too much and that they have had great stories to tell you at the end of the day!

Although our days are a little different, some things are very much the same! We have been getting our classroom ready with our birthday displays, our behaviour charters and our class bugs! We have loved getting crafty - sorry for our uniforms being a bit messy with paint!

Take a look below at some of our photos!

We hope you have a lovely rest this weekend Bumblebees and come back raring to go for Mondays' learning!

Have fun! 
Miss Ottaway , Mrs Horne and Mrs Pickford :) 




Welcome back to school! It has been a long time since we have seen some of you! We hope you have had a safe and restful summer break and are now ready to come back and carry on with all your fun learning! 

We know it's been a while since you've been to school and things are a little different for you and for us! You might feel happy to come back and see us, or you might even feel a little bit nervous! That's ok, all your adults are here to welcome you with big smiles and make sure everything will be ok for you!

We won't be jumping straight back into learning on your first two days back with us (Thursday 3rd, Friday 4th September) instead, we will be doing lots of fun activities to help get the classroom ready - we want you to help us make our displays! We will also be spending lots of time talking, it will be great to see all our friends again after so long!

Mums/ dads and everyone at home, please do not worry, we will look after your children with our upmost care, we know a return to school is a big step for you and them alike! We are sure that your children will make us all proud with their enthusiasm and resilience and look forward to sharing snippets of their learning on here with you.

Bumblebees, we have lots of exciting things planned for you this year and can not wait to see you soon, so, get yourselves an early night and your uniform out ready!
