Bumblebee Class

Miss Findlay and Mrs Jobin-Barbor

We welcome you all to the Autumn term where we are getting used to our new class, new ways to do things and new routines. We are very excited about the new learning we are doing.  Underpinning all of this in these strange times we will ensure we look after ourselves and others.


In English this term we will be having daily phonics through  ‘Letters and Sounds.’  We will be looking at various books including traditional tales such as The Three Little Pigs. We will be recapping our pencil grip and the formation of letters and remembering our blending and segmenting skills for reading and writing, challenging our writing stamina and independence.


 Our Maths focus will be number recognition and counting skills, more or less and estimating. We will also solve problems including addition and subtraction. The children will also have the challenge of increasing their number knowledge beyond 20.

Our topic and enquiry question this term is ‘Is now a good time to live in Chard?’  We will be looking at Chard and where we live. In Science we will be looking at seasonal changes, looking and replicating the work of Yayoi Kusama in Art and in RE we will be learning about the Christian belief in Jesus.


Please do not hesitate to contact the team if you have any questions. We look forward to expanding our knowledge further.
