Returning to School - Bees Children

We have been very busy preparing school, classrooms and resources ready for some children to return to school on the 15th June. Things in school look and feel a little bit different to before but this is to keep us ALL safe! However, we still have the same smiley and friendly faces to welcome you in and play and learn with you. 

We have made 2 videos showing 1 of the 4 areas your child MAY work in. You will get more information on their key worker and area next week. Please watch them all, read the documents and maybe draw a picture about what they are looking forward to when they come back to school. We would love to see this on EvidenceMe. 

Remember, we are here to help you any questions do get in contact. Remember to let the office know by Thursday 12pm if you intent for your child to be in on the 15th June. 

 

Thank You. Stay Safe!

Story Time ...

 

As some restrictions are being lifted and we are gradually being allowed to see people again and maybe return to school soon, this story is a lovely way to show some alternative ways to show someone you love and care for them ... Enjoy!

Online Safety at home ...

 

At the moment children are online a lot more due to home learning, more time at home and catching up with family and friends. Jessie and Friends is what we use in school to support online safety and have produced some great resources for you all to use at home and know how to stay safe. Have a look below ...

 

Talk for Writing at home ...

 

We use talk for writing in school to develop our speaking, listening, communication, reading, writing and so many other skills. I know a lot of parents have been enquiring about activities not computer based and these are great. You do not need to print them ... grown up's if you have a read through you can pick and choose what activities with the story will work for you. The documents have all the information in that you will need. I cannot wait to hear about what story you choose to do first. 

Talk for Writing Story booklets ... which one will you explore first?

Final week of Summer 1

Well ... what a weird half term it has been ... we have done this whole topic and half term from home! I have loved seeing all the work you have done. Below is a phonics and maths challenge.

Remember they are all ideas and you can pick and choose what works for you. I did think it would be good for us to all pick up a pencil again this week, in case like Miss Burke you have been using a computer a lot and not done much writing. I am going to try and write lots with a pencil this week.

 

I cannot wait to see your super learning this week! 

 

 

 

This morning I got another exciting email with more ideas on, this time from Mrs Kashmarski ... I know how much we love Julia Donaldson books in Bees, so I have chosen the story 'Tiddler' as it is all about under the sea for us to look at this week. Have a listen to the story and grown up's use the document below to help you think of some ideas to do after listening ... Have fun! There may be more Julia Donaldson stories on there way next week ...

Welcome Back to Summer Term (with a twist)!

Hello Wonderful Bees and your Grown Ups. 

I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter Break and enjoyed some chocolate treats (but not too many). This is not how we usually start a new term but to keep us all safe we are still working, learning and having fun from home. Our new topic this half term is PIRATES! I am so excited about all the new facts we will learn, things we will make and all the fun we will have.  

 

This half term we like to have a focus on children making up their own stories ... so we always start by enjoying lots of pirate stories together and then make our own up. So here are some stories for you to enjoy at home ... (if you have a favourite pirate story please share it with us on the Evidence Me app) - click on the title of the story you want to listen to first. 

 

The Pirate Cruncher by Jonny Duddle 

 

The Night Pirate 

 

The Pirates Next Door by Jonny Duddle 

 

Here is a song all about Pirates - Pirate Song 

 

Here is a video to teach you facts all about Pirates - Pirate Fact Video 

 

Here is our Summer 1 home learning sheet with lots of ideas of things you can be doing at home. Here at Berry Brow we really believe your children learn through play and first hand experiences - go with their interests and see what they want to learn. 

* Purple Mash: Each day a couple of new 2dos will be set on Purple Mash (teachers will log on and leave your comments on your work)

 

* Evidence Me: We will send some challenges by Evidence Me but you can also use this app to send us other bits of your learning you want to share. We love to celebrate with you and your children. 

 

 

We will keep you posted on our class page and don't forget you can also access the home learning page for other updates there too. Have fun! We miss you very much and look forward to seeing some more super learning.

 

Miss Burke :)

Happy Easter ...

 

Today has been a weird day for everyone and even stranger as the EASTER BUNNY visited us earlier than normal. It was so exciting. These smiles in the photo below made my day! We have been on a egg hunt and made baskets.

 

As of today school is closed to most pupils until further notice. Please loom after yourselves, stay safe and keep smiling! All of the staff in Bees will miss seeing you every day but we will be thinking of you during this time. Thank you for your support in uncertain times. 

 

Look at those smiles ...

 

Did you know we have caterpillars in Bees?

 

We have been busy learning about the lifecycle of a butterfly and looking after our caterpillars to help them grow. Look at them growing ...

 

Today we went outside and got some fresh air. I absolutely loved watching reception and nursery children work together to build this house. They planned, shared ideas and worked together. What fabulous Learning was going on!

Artists - Giuseppe Arcimboldo

 

We have enjoyed learning to be artists the last few weeks in Bees. We practised different skills and in the end produced these FANTASTIC paintings. Come and visit Bees to see them more closely. Can you remember any facts about Giuseppe to tell anyone at home. 

 

We have loved World Book Day in Beeโ€™s ... books, hot chocolate, stories and getting cosy this afternoon. We also enjoyed a weekly visit to the library to change our books. Enjoy a book and hot chocolate tonight ...

We were visited by the author Catherine Jacob and acted out her story 'There's a Troll in My Toilet'. It is a great story and highly recommended!

Happy Pancake Day from Bees. We enjoyed making and eating pancakes this morning ...

We are making bird feeders this week ...

 

Mix, mix, mix ... we made rainbow buns ...

 

We have been busy bakers today in Bees ... Jack asked us to mix colours to make purple, green and orange buns. Can you remember how to mix colours? ...

 

red + yellow = orange

red + blue = purple 

yellow + blue = green 

 

Were they tasty? Can you remember the ingredients we used? Why not try and make colourful buns at home.

 

Our very own beanstalks ...

 

Today I have loved working in the science area with the Bees children. We have planted our own beans. We talked about how to look after them. We are now just waiting to see what happens, we can’t wait (some of us came to check our seeds every 5 minutes after we planted them) At home see if you can find any plants in your house or garden and discuss with a grown up how you look after them. We have made a handy set of instructions to help you plant seeds at home. Have fun! 

 

Today Elephants and Giraffes enjoyed Boccia with Mr Fox ... we practised our aiming skills. Zebras and kangaroos are looking forward to their turn tomorrow.

Happy New Year! We look forward to welcoming you back to school tomorrow morning!
