Continuous Provision

Play is fundamental to learning in Bumblebees and our indoor and outdoor spaces reflect this. Children are able to access a variety of focused areas that are enhanced to move their learning forward. Our children are inquisitive and independent learners who love to explore.

Phonics and Reading in Bumblebees

Children in Reception and Year 1 are taught daily phonics following Little Wandle. We enjoy sharing stories and reading daily in Bumblebees. Reading books are matched to individual phonic ability. Nursery enjoy listening to stories, learning rhymes and taking part in early phonics activities.

See below for the focus each week in Autumn phonics for Reception and Year 1:

In Bumblebees we enjoy sharing our learning between home and school.

This year we look forward to organising more stay and read sessions.

Maths in Bumblebees

We follow White Rose Maths to develop our maths skills along with daily mental maths practise. We encourage a practical, hands on approach to maths learning in Bumblebees. We definitely enjoy problem solving!
