Bumblebee Class News

We have been very busy back at school in Bumblebee class!

We have elected our new school councillors and are really pleased that Sophie, Charles, Freddy and Shakeel will be representing our class this year.

We have got well and truly stuck into our Egyptian topic and we have designed some stunning hieroglyphic cartouches which have been turned into book marks but are also decorating our classroom door. We are organising our first trip which will be to the British Museum in London to see the real Egyptian artefacts first hand! Look out for more information to follow!

Lord Carnarvon’s briefcase still remains locked however we have cracked two of the maths challenges to get inside!

This term we are learning an Egyptian song called ‘Amazing Egyptians’. Check out the tune and lyrics here so you can practise at home.

Our value this term is Generosity. The children have already explored this through the story of The Smartest Giant in Town and the Generous Widow and have plenty of examples of the ways people are generous to them as well as ways they can be generous to others. The children have already been awarded ‘Class of the week’ for their hard work and generosity around school.

Every week we practise our times tables and are tested on our times table target. Please help your child practise as much as possible at home. ‘Hit the button’ online is a great way to practise.
