We are super friends, learning and exploring together! We are so stuck into our learning it’s hard to believe we have only been in school a month! Proud of our Bees!

Our talk for writing story ...

We are getting really good at our new story. Why not tell it to someone at home? They would love to hear it ...


The team work and collaboration in Bees has astounded us this afternoon! The children went outside saw a caravan and decided to build their own, working together, there was food for the workers and we even had the petrol being poured ready for an adventure! WOW 🀩 Miss Burke was put out of a job but loved stepping back and seeing the teamwork and hearing all the ideas being shared! What a great team we make in Bees! You have made us very proud! Keep it up 🌟🌟🌟

Jigsaw Jennie


This is Jigsaw Jennie, she is always in our classroom, making sure we make good choices and work hard, twice a week we have jigsaw time where we talk about lots of different things and this week it was all about being a good friend!


23.09.21- We have been in the Birthday Garden again. We collected lots of leaves, sticks and stones for our classroom. Then we played on the climbing frame 😊

We met an AUTHOR!

Today we met Catherine Rayner on zoom. She read us stories and told us all about how to draw Arol the lion. We had a great morning. I would love to hear about stories you have read at home, remember to share with us on Evidence Me. 


Last week we went on our first Woodland Walk to the Birthday Garden! We had so much fun! We watered the plants, found frogs in the pond and even saw a worm! I wonder what we will find next time...

We have been learning to recognise our name this week and matched our name to the portraits we made using natural resources. Can you guess who these are portraits are of?

We loved our first session with Jacob from the Giants ... we will have sessions every Monday! Today we learnt to listen and practised balancing beanbags in different positions.
