Welcome to Bumblebee class! Our teacher is Mrs Steiner, who has been teaching at Bedwell for 2 years and is kind, calm and helpful. We are also supported by our fantastic teaching assistants, Mrs Avis and Mrs Nichols. We all come to school in the mornings, and some of us also stay for the afternoons as well - if you are interested in finding out more about 30 hour provison or additional hours, please speak to Mrs Steiner or the School Office.
Home learning ideas:
Our latest news:
Child Initiated Learning - we have had the chance to try out a huge range of activities linked to learning, our own individual interests and our focus story, Owl Babies. As a result we have developed and widened our friendship circles, enabling us to engage with our environment and improve our speaking and listening skills. Many of us have made fantastic progress because of this. We always look forward to finding out what new activities and challenges have appeared in our classrooms each day and are also keen to find new ways to explore, use and play with the equipment and resources around us.
Communication & Language - Throughout the term, we will be learning to be good listeners, developing our ability to use spoken language to share our feelings, ideas and experiences. We will be encouraged to speak in full sentences throughout the day, making sure that we use the right tense (past, present or future) and sensible vocabulary. We will also be broadening our vocabulary through stories, asking and answering questions about the texts we have met and trying to use because and and to link ideas.
Personal, Social & Emotional Learning - We will make sure that we are talking to our friends whilst playing, always using kind words and kind hands and trying to develop relationships. We will be encouraged to add storylines and narratives in our play, and to share these ideas with others so that we can all take part in the same story or adventure.
Physical Development - In our weekly PE sessions, we will be developing our spatial awareness, finding space, moving towards and away from each other, and travelling and stopping with control. We will also continue to practise throwing and catching using balls and beanbags. We will always be encouraged to be independent in our self-help skills, trying to put on our own coats and shoes (please remember that laces are tricky!)
