Welcome to the Bumblebee Class webpage 2023-2024!
Welcome children and families to our home page. The new academic year has begun and we have lots of exciting playing and learning opportunities ahead of us.
As a school, we follow the Cornerstones Curriculum. Each ‘short’ term (so 6 times a year) the topics change. There is always one main theme followed by a companion project.
Our Cornerstones theme this term is ‘Lets Explore’ where our children will learn about the environments that they share with others, including their homes, school and places in the local community. In addition our Cornerstones companion project is ‘Build It Up’ where our children will learn about structures and materials and be given the opportunity to work in groups to create collaborative structures.
Read Write Inc
In reception at Bethersden our children develop their phonetic knowledge through the popular phonics scheme Read Write Inc (RWI). Our children will begin their phonics journey by learning their set 1 sounds.
In Power Maths this term we will be building strong mathematical foundations deepening our understanding of numbers from 1 to 5 and securing our knowledge of both 2D and 3D shapes.
How can you help your reception child?
In Bumblebee Class we have an open door policy. We are always available after school if you need a quick catch up. If you need a longer or more private meeting, please book this through the office and we will be happy to accommodate.
If you have a non-urgent message for the team you could email the families email on the address below. This is checked regularly and the message will forwarded to the class team.
We cannot wait for our learning journey to begin.
Very best wishes,
Miss Young, Mrs Davis and Mrs Munday (Your EYFS Team)
