Bumblebee Class


In reception we do response planning on a weekly basis meaning our activities are based on the previous weeks assessment.

In Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 (Reception to Year 2) our reading scheme is the Oxford Reading Tree from Oxford University Press, supplemented with the “Floppy’s Phonics” scheme.

A big thank you to all the parents and carers who came to watch.
