Hello Bumblebees. In the event of the children having to self- isolate I will put work up on here for the children to complete at home. 

When I put worksheets on the resources, please don't feel you have to print them off.  They are there for you to look at and use them as a guide.  If you would like to copy them please do but don't feel you have to print them off.


The following links are fantastic websites with activity ideas for young children - and . 

BBC Bitesize will publish daily online lessons to help pupils expand their learning and to aid parents to engage children of all ages with learning at home 📚- 

Children are requested to complete the following work daily. 

An early morning phonics challenge (one slide/page per day)

- A maths challenge 

- An English / phonics challenge

- 10 minutes of reading (Bug Club, Oxford Owl or your own books at home) 

- A topic challenge of their choice


Don't forget Joe Wicks has lots of P.E sessions on his YouTube channel if you would like to complete one daily- 


Weekly challenges for the whole week 


New- Please complete one morning phonics activity (attached below) before moving onto the other challenges. This week I would like you to complete a section a day of the 'Phase 2- I Spy Challenge', Thank you :) 


Day one:


Maths- As a fun starter I would like you to either count to 20- .

I would then like you to complete an activity from the document saved at the bottom called "counting10 objects". 


Phonics task- I would like you to recap the taught phase 2 sounds (s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u and r) Start by singing along to the following songs- (phase 2). Ask an adult to call out some sounds from your phase 2 (these can be found below) and point to the correct one. Did you struggle to find any of them? If you did I would like you to write these down on separate sheets of paper and place them around the room or garden. When an adult calls one of the sounds out run to the correct one. Using a stick from the garden or chalk see if you can write these sounds in the mud or on the concrete. With lots of practice I know you will remember them.


Topic- Go on an initial sound hunt around the house. Find items that start with the following sounds- t, a and s. 

Day two: 


Maths-  As a fun starter practice your number formation using the following rhyme to help you- . I would then like you to complete an activity from the document saved at the bottom called "counting10 objects". 



Phonics/ English task- Recap over the sounds we have learnt so far (s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u and r). Use the following song to help- (phase 2). I would like you to complete an activity from the document at the bottom called 'Jolly Postman'. 


Topic- Use string, sticks and a cloth to make a teeny raft. Can you make it float? How can you make it move? can it hold any weight? Can you race it?

We are the Early Years Foundation Stage where learning takes place through purposeful play opportunities that are led and directed by the children.


Any child's first year at school is the most important stage of their schooling journey. This year provides children with the skills necessary to later progress onto a formal approach to learning. 


We strive to ensure all children gain secure personal, social and emotional skills, communication and language and physical skills in order to establish firm foundations, which can later be built upon when learning the academic skills, such as literacy and mathematics. 


We work closely with parents and families to ensure a positive and supportive relationship is developed to enhance the outcomes of all children. 


You will find lots of useful and important information about Bumblebee class in the downloadable booklet below. 


Please also take a look at the following links where you can find some interesting reads to help and support your child within their development and learning. 


Books we are looking at this half term- Stick Man, Jolly Postman
