Summer Term 1 - Do you know how they grow?

Week 1 – Welcome back to Bumblebee class! This week we have been very busy reading ‘The Very Busy Spider’. This week we have welcomed new friends, and thought about how we play together. In Mathematics we recapped everything we know about numbers 1-4, and played with our new Numberblocks toys. In phonics we learnt sounds u and b. We managed to have lots of fun outside now the sun has joined us.

Week 2 – This week we have been reading the ‘Very Hungry Caterpillar’, we made our own caterpillars while thinking about the pattern, and then thought about how to make butterflies by folding the paper. In phonics we looked at f and e this week. Bumblebee class love to try writing the letters each day and using their Fred fingers to think about what words they can write. In Mathematics we have been looking at the number 5. We have been investigating what is in out fruit and how big and small seeds can be, and why we think our plants have become droopy. This week we had a very exciting football workshop where we got to learn some freestyle football. Thank you for everyone who joined in with the run at the end of the week the children had a great attempt at running around the school!

Week 3 – This week was a very busy week. The books we read were ‘Doug the Bug that Went Boing’ and ‘Winnie-The-Pooh Meets the King’. In mathematics we were looking at numbers 0-5 and starting to think about putting them in order. We were very busy planting seeds, exploring for minibeast and getting ready for the big celebration of the Coronation of King Charles III. We had so much fun dancing and playing with our dragonfly friends.

Week 4 – This week Bumblebee Class read ‘Yucky Worm’s together, and then went out looking for them as it was the perfect wet weather for them to show up. We started looking at one more and one less in mathematics and used our number skills. We also enjoyed measuring the minibeasts in the tray with cubes. We were then busy doing lots of writing inside and outside. Bumblebee class love writing at the moment and it so nice to see them trying to write.

Week 5 – This week we had a buzzing week celebrating World Bee Day. We thought about how we can do our part to look after bees and what would happen if we didn’t have them anymore. In mathematics we looked at one more and one less. We also had a lot of assembly practice. Thank you everyone who came, the children worked really hard and we were very proud of them all. To celebrate world bee day we had lots of buzzing crafts and made honey sandwiches.

Week 6 – This week we have been busy reading ‘Anywhere Farm’ and thinking about where we planted our farm. Our mathematics focus was on shape. We looked at the shapes that we know and new ones that we learnt about and thought about how many sides and corners they have. We also built lots of towers with them. We also said goodbye to out butterflies. We had a special treat when we were able to visit the chicks in dragonfly class before they went to their new home.
