Our teacher is Miss Eastwood.

Bumblebee class are an energetic and friendly group of Year 1 children.




Our topic this term is 'Memory Box':

Can you remember being small? Being a baby and learning to crawl? Do you recall a favourite toy, maybe a teddy bear or best loved book?


These are just some of the questions we will be exploring this term. By the end, the children will create their own special memory boxes.

This term we will be:

  • Sorting and counting objects
  • Counting, reading, writing forwards and backwards
  • Finding one more and one less than
  • One to one correspondence to compare groups
  • Ordering numbers to 20
  • Using ordinal numbers
  • Exploring number lines




We teach 'letters and sounds' for 20mins every day and this term we will be reviewing and practising all the phonemes and graphemes from phase 2 and 3.

At present we are practising our trigraphs (igh, ear, ure, air).




We will be sharing lots of stories, such as: The Very Lazy Ladybird, The Very Busy Bumblebee and The Four Little Pigs!

The children will be retelling and acting-out stories, practising their letter formation  and writing, labels, captions and simple sentences.



This page will be regularly updated with information and the children's work.
