Nursery - BumbleBee
Welcome to Bumblebee Class page.
We are Bumblebee Class. Bumblebees are one of the main pollinators here in the UK, which means they are very important for plants we grow especially those for food and medicines. There are many species of bumblebee so we have focussed on the ‘white-tailed bumblebee’ or ‘Bombus Lucorum’. It is a very common bumble bee that can be found anywhere there are flowers to feed on including gardens and woodland.
The white-tailed bumblebee is black with two lemon-yellow bands on its body and a white 'tail'. We have enjoyed exploring bumblebees through the story ‘The Boy Who Lost his Bumble’ and looking closely at the patterns and textures of a bumblebee’s furry body!
Look at what we have been learning about...
Please have a read of our class SWAY where you can view some of the learning we have been getting up to.
If you are viewing this page on a mobile device then please turn your device landscape to view the SWAY. Please be patient as it takes a moment to load.
Please see below what Nursery are learning this term. If you click on the documents, they will open into a large version.
The documents are Knowledge Organisers. They contain key facts and information that the children need to have as a basic knowledge and understanding of the topic – giving them the ‘bigger picture’ of what they will be learning at school.
Read Every Day, Talk Every Day
RED TED is an acronym for children Reading Every Day with their parent or carer and then Talking Every Day about what they have read.
We will change books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please see the class teacher if you would like your child's book changed on any alternative days.
We strongly encourage you to continue RED TED as part of your home learning. Keep track of how many books you read with tally marks or by making your own chart. If you have your own printer you can download and print this chart (RED TED Chart).
Celebrate reaching reading milestones by sharing a picture of your chart with your teacher on Tapestry. Please refer to the Reading section below for a list of websites offering a range of online books and read aloud books.
Please click on the Red Ted for more information on how RED TED operates in the classroom.
Here is a useful website to help your child continue their learning at home. Have you tried 'Count with Lecky', 'Dressing Lecky' and 'Lecky's Friends'?
