Welcome to Bees

 

Bees is an exciting place to learn and discover new things! We look forward to an amazing year together. 

 

The class teachers are Miss Brennan and Mr Brazil supported by Miss Brook and Miss Hutchinson.

 

Mrs Letch helps us in the mornings and Mrs Yong in the afternoons. Sometimes Miss Blackburn or Mr Brazil have to go and do their busy jobs. Mrs Hirst comes in then to help. What a busy classroom!

 

 

Reminders

 

We visit the library on Mondays, don't forget your book bag!

 

Guided reading takes place throughout the week, try get into the habit of always bringing your book bag everyday.

 

Don't forget to write names in clothes, we already have some unclaimed items!

 

For the second Spring term we have been learning about The Very Hungry Caterpillar, here is the text the children have been learning and below that the story map which helps us to remember how to tell the story. Have a practice at home!

 

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

 

In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.

One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and POP out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry little caterpillar.

He started to look for some food.

On Monday he had one apple. But he was still hungry.

On Tuesday he had two pears. But he was still hungry.

On Wednesday he hadthree plums. But he was still hungry.

On Thursday he had four strawberries. But he was still hungry.

On Friday he had five oranges. But he was still hungry.

On Saturday he had one piece of chocolate cake, one ice cream cone, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of salami, one lollipop, one piece of cherry pie, one sausage, one cupcake and one slice of watermelon.

That night he had a tummy ache.

The next day was Sunday.

He ate one nice green leaf. After that he felt much better.

Now he was a big fat caterpillar. He built a small house called a cocoon and stayed inside for two weeks.

Finally he nibbled a hole, pushed his way out and POP he was a beautiful butterfly.

 

 

Our 'special story' for the first spring term was 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. To help the children grow in confidence story telling, reading and writing we learnt to tell the story using 'talk for writing', have a look at our story map. Below that is the text we use to tell the story as a class, why not try it as a story at home and encourage them to join in. 

 

 

Once upon a time there was a boy called Jack, who lived in a cottage with his mum.

 

Early one morning, he woke up and went downstairs.

“We are very poor” said mum, “go and sell our cow.”

 

So off he went.

He walked and he walked and he walked until he met an old man.

“I will buy your cow” he said, “Here are 5 magic beans.”

 

When Jack got home mum was furious and threw the beans outside.

 

The next day there was a gigantic beanstalk. Jack decided to climb up.

When he got to the top he saw a huge castle.

He opened the door and tiptoed inside.

There he found a bag of gold, picked it up and set off home.

‘Jingle jangle, jingle, jangle’ went the gold.

Suddenly the giant woke up. “Fee, fi, fo fum – I smell the blood of an English man!”

Jack ran all the way home as fast as he could.

 

 

The next day Jack climbed up the beanstalk again.

When he got to the top he saw an enormous castle.

He opened the door and tiptoed inside.

There he found a golden goose, picked it up and set off home.

‘Honk honk, honk honk’ went the goose.

Suddenly the giant woke up. “Fee, fi, fo fum – I smell the blood of an English man!”

Jack ran all the way home as fast as he could.

 

The next day Jack climbed up the beanstalk again.

When he got to the top he saw a colossal castle.

He opened the door and tiptoed inside.

There he found a golden harp, picked it up and set off home.

‘Brrrring brrrring, brrrring brrrring’ went the harp.

Suddenly the giant woke up. “Fee, fi, fo fum – I smell the blood of an English man!”

 

Jack ran all the way home but the giant chased him.

 

He climbed down the beanstalk as fast as he could.

Finally Jack reached the bottom, got an axe and chopped it down.

 

CRASH went the beanstalk.

AAARRGGHH went the Giant.

 

Jack and his mum were not poor anymore and they lived happily ever after.

A snapshot of a Monday in Bees. We have been doing lots of jobs linked to our 'Talk for Writing' story The Little Red Hen. Here you can see us making bread from playdough, making houses for the characters, building bread ovens and changing the story map to invent our own versions of the story. Thank you for all the leaves, we are also making trees for a project which is a secret at the moment. Shhhh!
