Welcome to Honeybees – Reception
Welcome to Honey Bees. All of the children have made such a positive start to the school year and it has been wonderful to see everyone settling in to their new routines! We have a very supportive and fun crew of adults in Honey Bees; consisting of Mrs Evans-Cook (Teacher), Mrs Perkins (Teaching Assistant), Miss Williamson (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Pearson (Teaching Assistant).
This term we are focusing on the book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers, linking this to Diversity. Please see our Autumn Term Overview to see all of the activities that we hope to cover.
This half term we have covered all of Phase 2 Letters and Sounds and all of the chidren have thorougly enjoyed a range of activities to aid their learning and are now getting more confident at blending and segmenting to read and write. Please continue to practice daily the inital sound key rings (remember to learn their names too) and tricky words too. As soon as you know your current tricky words, please let us know and we will send home the next set!
Links below to practice the letter sound and names - sing along and learn!

This term we have been learning to recognise numbers, to count accurately, sequence numbers, sorting objects in a variety of ways and are currently learning more than and less than.
Every week we enjoy focusing our activites on a new book. Last week we learnt about 'Stick Man' and enjoyed finding sticks and making him and his family too!
This week we watched 'Room on the Broom'and discussed spells and if we could make a wish, what would it be? We then made our own wands using a range of resources!
We have been learning to travel in lots of different ways and we are also learning ball skills. We are thoroughly enjoying using the new Village Hall!
