Welcome to Bumblebees Class!
Welcome to Bumblebee Class with Miss Edwards and Mrs Barbour. The children are continuing to work extremely hard with their learning and are becoming increasingly independent and resilient when facing new challenges. As a class they are beginning to reflect more confidently on our own achievements; identifying what they have done well and how they can improve their learning. The children are particularly supportive to their peers and are encouraged to celebrate their successes.
As an introduction to English this term, Bumblebees have been very lucky and have received a letter from the gingerbread man. Along with this they have received gingerbread men to decorate before writing their own set of instructions. Throughout the remainder of the Summer term, children will also be learning about narratives, non-chronological texts and poetry. The children will continue to practise improving their handwriting and punctuation such as capital letters and full stops, as well as developing their phonic knowledge further.
In Maths, the children will be focusing on multiplication, division, fractions, geometry, place value, money and time. The children are beginning to deepen their understanding through tackling problem solving and reasoning questions and are beginning to articulate their understanding.
Our new topic for this half term is ‘Traditional Tales/ Castles’. In Geography and History, the children will be looking at traditional stories from around the world; designing and making their own sock puppet based on one of these traditional tales; learning about castles; locating different countries on a map and comparing them to the United Kingdom and learning the five oceans of the world.
After half term our topic will be ‘Victorians’ where the children will learn about famous people such as Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and will learn about the life of a Victorian. Across the term in Science the children will be learning about human growth and animals.
