Welcome to Honey Bee Class – Reception bee clipart

 Welcome to Honeybee Class. We have a very supportive and fun crew of adults in Honeybee Class; consisting of Miss Edmondson (Class Teacher), Mrs Perkins (Teaching Assistant), Miss Williamson (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Watt (Teaching Assistant). We are all so excited to work with you in your first year at school!

In class we have enjoyed making these bees to decorate our classroom as well as finding out some fun facts about them!

Did you know that bees buzz by flapping their wings 200 times each second and that they communicate to each other by dancing!

In class we have been watching 'Inside Out' and sharing stories about different feelings. We have been thinking about times when we have felt happy, sad, angry and scared. This links with our 'Zones of Regulation' in class:

This term our topic is 'Marvellous Me'. We have identified similarities and differences between us and talked how amazing we are! We have been enjoying a range of activities in class including: sharing stories, painting self portraits, talking about our families, looking at baby pictures to see how we have grown and changed and so much more!

How Monster Phonics Works | Monster Phonics

We are making great progess with our phonic knowledge, following the 'Monster Phonics' scheme. We are using our growing phonic knowledge in our reading and writing and have enjoyed reading some of our new Monster Phonics books!

In maths we have been working on our recognition of numbers to 20. We have been learning to find one more and one less than a given number as well as combining groups to find out how many 'altogether', using lots of practical apparatus to help us. We are starting to use the + and = signs to write our own number sentences.  . We have been learning about pattern and have enjoyed creating some repeating patterns of our own.
