Bumblebee Fun

What another fantastic week in the Bumblebees class.

Our topic for this term is focused around Animal Kingdom. Our Bumblebees have been making Bear Toast in cooking, developing our skills of holding a knife, scooping, spreading and we even managed some food tasting. I think it’s safe to say our Bumblebees enjoy chocolate toast with banana and raisins.

We even managed to manipulate some edible dough and use cutters to create different animal shapes.

Our Bumblebees also enjoyed looking at the different animal books, turning the pages and feeling the different textures.

Our Bumblebees also enjoyed Swimming this week, as well as Music with Bev. The children enjoyed banging on the drum, in the sunshine, within their 1:1 session.

We have also been practicing our fine motor skills by painting and trying to isolate our fingers. Some of us didn’t like paint on our fingers, so we practiced using a roller. Great job Bumblebees!

Busy Bees

It’s the end of week two and what another amazing we have had with our little Bumblebees!


We have completed a full week of our wonderful new timetable and what a lovely experience it has been for everyone. Our little ones have explored new things and gained new experiences.


Our timetable focuses on all the key areas for your child to build on their life skills. This week we have looked at gross motor skills through swimming, outdoor play and PE. Also, communication of our children’s likes and dislikes, through food tasting and choosing. Our Bees were very good at sharing what they didn’t like through a variety of ways – clever bees! Let’s not forget our personal, social & emotional development through collaborative ‘good morning’ sessions and snack/lunch time.

'We didn't realise we were making memories, we just thought we were having fun'.

Thank you for your continued support. We hope you have a lovely weekend.
