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!

Curriculum Overview 

 

Summer Term

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. 

RED TED

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.

If your child is accessing the internet at home, please always ensure you are present when they do.

Please continue to read to your child every day.
