Bumblebee Class

Our Bumblebee class is a mixed class of year 3 and 4. This class is taught by Miss Lee.


In Year Three and Four at Corfe Castle Primary School, we want to create the opportunity for all children to immerse themselves fully into Key Stage Two and the exciting challenges that it will bring.


After successfully transitioning into Key Stage Two, our pupils can now understand their role as independent learners within school. We reasonably expect them to master key skills such as: organisation, time management and to continue the commitment and motivation towards learning and developing as children.


Reading is a very important skill that has a high priority in Bumblebee Class; the children read independently every day and usually read to an adult during the week. Some children are reading using our school’s reading scheme books and others are “free readers”, choosing their own reading books from the new selection of popular books chosen specifically for our class. Reading skills are taught weekly in Guided reading sessions with the teacher, with specific learning focuses. Children who require extra support with their reading receive extra support from our skilled Teaching assistants.


Home Learning in Bumblebee Class

Homework is set every week linked to learning in class.  Children will get new spellings on a Friday. English will be set on Atom Learning every Friday and will be due in on the Thursday. Maths will be sent home to children on a Friday and be due in on Thursday.Each half-term children, are encouraged to participate in our half termly projects. 


Recommended minimum time to spend on home learning – 10-20 minutes reading per day PLUS 1 hour per week on other identified home learning. If you are struggling to get your child to complete the homework, we will be running a homework club on a Monday lunchtime where they are more than welcome to come and complete their homework with support in school.


The content and rigour of our Year Three and Year Four curriculum raises expectations and inspires our pupils to achieve the very best they can. However, central to academic achievements is our ethos at Corfe Castle CE Primary School of, ‘Nurture, Inspire, and Achieve’. We aim for your child to mature emotionally and socially and feel confident but, above all, enjoy their time in Year Three and Year Four.
