Welcome to Bumble Bee Class (Y1 & Y2)

IMG_2004In Bumble Bee Class, our teachers are Mrs Wood and Mrs Dobbs. 

Throughout the year we will share all our exciting learning on this class page… keep checking back to see if you can spot yourself. 


We deliver a theme based curriculum through which the children learn National Curriculum skills, using an exciting theme to create interest and enjoyment. Each half term the theme will change to ensure all children are engaged in stimulated learning tasks.  To find out more, click on the link… 


KS1 Cycle A Long Term Plan

Book Bags

Please bring your book bag to school every day, that way you are ready to reaIMG_2003d 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 by placing it in the green box.


Each week you will receive Maths, spelling and timetable homework.  Your homework will be given out on a Friday afternoon and handed in on a Wednesday morning.  Every time you hand in your homework, you will receive a tick on our homework chart. 
Why don’t you try to get a tick 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.

Our Exciting Curriculum

Take a look at our exciting learning this year.  We have learnt so much in all our themes:

Habitat Boxes

As part of our theme work, we enjoyed working together in small groups to make a habitat box for a hot or cold country.  



Text Mapping

We are excellent at text mapping stories in Bumble Bee Class.  Here are some examples of our excellent work.



School Council

We voted for our School Council representatives for this academic year and our School Council members are Esme and Oakley.

School Council meet every two weeks and share the responses from the class in our two weekly Class Council meetings.
