Recent updates from Bumblebee class

  • Pete The Dinosaur

    Bumblebees, Ladybirds and Caterpillars became paleontologists last term and learnt all about Dinosaurs! They found out so many facts, so if you need to know anything about the Jurassic or Mesozoic period, pop along to the  Foundation Stage classrooms and ask one of their experts! They made their own dinosaurs from junk and construction materials. They designed a brand new dinosaur , thinking about where it would live and whether it would be a carnivore or herbivore.

  • Fantastic Fridays in FS2

    Fantastic Fridays have started in FS2! 2 Ladybirds and 2 Bumblebees are picked to become the teachers every Friday. They come into a planning meeting during Thursday afternoon, decide what they’d like to learn about, plan their resources and then deliver their topic during Fantastic Friday! So far we’ve been learning about boats, starfish, cars and butterflies. I wonder what we’ll be learning about during the next Fantastic Friday?

  • Happy Chinese New Year

    Recently in Foundation Stage we have been celebrating Chinese New Year. We have made Chinese dragons, built Chinese houses and compared them to our own homes, made lucky red envelopes with yen inside, made Chinese lanterns, chopped vegetables to go into our stir fry (which we loved eating with our very own chopsticks!) and we all danced around the playground with instruments and scarves as a very long dragon! Happy Chinese New Year everyone…Kung Hei Fat Chow!

A special well done to all the Year 2s for learning their parts and projecting their voices so well. All the children across the 4 year groups performed so well and the singing was beautiful. A big thank you to all the parents and carers who came to watch.

  • Autumn in Ladybirds and Bumblebees

    Ladybirds and Bumblebees have all settled really well into school. This term we have been learning lots of new skills to make us independent learners. We love Funky Fingers and Dough Gym as it helps us to exercise our fingers and arms to get us ready to be great writers. In PE we have been trying really hard to get ourselves undressed and dressed, even though shoes and socks can be particularly tricky! We have loved learning about Autumn this…
