What peace means to us...
We were inspired by Remembrance Day to create our own poppy art work and explore what peace means to us. We discussed how we have a responsbility to create peace in our classroom and the wider world.
Maths in Reception
Our Maths lessons are very hands on, involving lots of practical resources. Our children can then often be found in the provision, continuing their learning.
The continuous provision in Bumblebees is based upon the interests of the children. Our children are inqusitive and independent learners who love to explore. We have purposefully chosen to use natural resources, to create more open-ended learning opporunties and inspire curiosity whilst also being mindful of the environment.
Our bear sculptures inspired by Michelle Reader
We used recycled materials to create our own bear sculptures. We used cutting, sticking and rolling skills to make them.
