Welcome to Bumble Bee Class – Year One and Two
In Bumble Bee class, our teachers are Mrs Wood, Mrs Dobbs and Mrs Chapplehow.
Throughout the year we will share all our exciting learning on our class page of the website. Keep checking back to see if you can sport yourself.
We voted for our school council representatives for this academic year and our school council members are Rory and Libby.
School council meet every two weeks and share the responses from the class in our two weekly class council meetings.
Check the school council pages for the meeting notes.
We will be voting for our class council member next week.
Please bring your book bag to school every day, that way you are ready to read every day! You can change your book when you need to, don’t forget, when you finish a book, you need to complete an activity from your reading response journal and hand it to Mrs Wood.
Each week you will receive Maths, English, spelling and timetable homework. Your homework will be handed out on a Friday afternoon and handed in on a Wednesday morning. Every time you hand in your homework, you will receive a smiley face on our homework chart. Why don’t you try to get a smile every week?
Our learning logs are given out each half term. Mrs Wood discusses the homework with the children, in detail, before they are given out. They contain a number of tasks and activities linked to our current theme to complete throughout the half term. All the tasks are open ended and can be completed by the children, though we encourage parents to help and support.
Some of the tasks are best completed towards the end of the half term as they link to the learning we will be completing in class. Awards are given at the end of each half term for homework completed. The awards are given for effort especially presentation and for completion of all tasks.
We deliver a topic based curriculum through which the children learn National Curriculum skills, using an interesting theme to create interest and enjoyment. Each half term the topic will change to ensure all children are engaged in stimulated learning tasks.
