Bumblebee Class Y1

Welcome to Bumblebee Class!


Welcome to Bumblebee Class, Year One! We hope you have had a fantastic summer and are excited for the year ahead. 


Our teacher in Bumblebee Class is Miss Carter and our teaching assistant is Miss Bartlett.


Please try, if possible, to read with an adult at home five times a week. Reading books can be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Also, please remember to bring both your reading books and your PE kits into school every day as we are very busy bees!



In maths, we have been learning how to use a part part whole model to break a set of objects into groups. We have been really busy writing lots of brilliant addition number sentences.

This week in art, we have been learning how to draw our facial features in detail.  We used mirrors to help us to sketch our eyes, ears, noses and mouths which will really help us when we come to draw our self-portraits next week. 

On Wednesday this week, we had a special visit from a hen! We had a great time finding out lots of information about hens and even had a chance to feel the food she eats as well as giving her a gentle stroke! We decided after a lot of thought to call her Rosie after the story 'Rosie's Walk'. Later in the week, we then wrote a fact file about hens and were really interested in finding out that hens come from dinosaurs!! 


In maths this week, we have been ordering numbers from smallest to greatest and greatest to smallest and have been comparing numbers to 10 using more than, less than and equal to. We have really impressed our teachers with how confident we now are with our numbers to 10!


Another exciting part of the week was no pens day! We took part in lots of different things including learning a new song and drawing some words on the playground in chalk in our phonics lesson. Take a look at the pictures below. 


Well done for yet another fantastic week Bumblebees! Have a lovely weekend. 



This week we have had great fun learning the story 'Rosie's Walk'. We created our own story map and acted it out using lots of good actions. We have also started to write some brilliant sentences about Rosie and the silly fox!


During the week, we have been learning about Rosie's farm during our geography lessons. We have been super busy and have been on a treasure hunt and have used different compass directions to help our partner get around Rosie's farm. We also got a message from one of Rosie's friends called Ziggy who needed us to draw him a map to help him find Rosie's coop. We remembered all of the key parts of the farm from the story and drew some brilliant maps with lots of different symbols to help Ziggy out. We were so happy that Ziggy did manage to get to see Rosie in the end!!


Great work this week Bumblebees! Have a lovely weekend. smiley


Wow, what a busy and exciting week we have had!


In English, we have learnt all about Roald Dahl and have had great fun creating our own Dream Jars after reading part of 'The BFG' . We also had a brilliant time thinking of lots of creative ideas for our own marvellous medicines after watching a clip about 'George's Marvellous Medicine' including medicine that could make someone shrink to the size of an ant, turn blue all over and even turn someone into a smelly poo! 


We have also worked really hard in maths this week and have impressed our teachers with our fantastic counting to 10! We have been ordering number cards, making numbers on tens frame and counting different objects up to 10. Have a look at the pictures below. 


Well done for all of your hard work this week Bumblebees! 

Autumn Term Curriculum Newsletter

We have had a super (and busy!) first week back. We have been learning ‘’All About Me’’ to get to know each other better and have drawn some brilliant self-portraits and thought what we would like to be when we are older. We have also designed are dream houses and had great fun thinking of houses made of marshmallows, houses in space and even houses at the bottom of the sea! Our teachers have been really impressed by the work we have done and how amazingly we have settled into our new classroom.


A huge well done Bumblebee’s – what an excellent way to start Year One!
