Welcome to Bumblebees.

Your class teacher is Mrs Griffiths.

Your teaching assistants are Mrs Patterson and Mrs Bennett.

We have been busy over the Summer developing the outdoor area and are delighted with how much joy this is bringing the children. We are keen to encourage the children to develop a love of the outdoors and outdoor learning. With this in mind, we would be grateful if you could ensure that your child has a pair of wellies and outdoor waterproofs in school at all times.

Your child will in due course receive letters, tricky words and reading books to bring home. Please practice these at home for 10 minutes every day. Please help your child put these in the allocated box for checking and changing every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Our PE day is Tuesday, and this term we will be indoors. We recommend that you leave your child’s kit in school and we will send it home with them at the end of each half term for a wash.

Now we have settled in, we are encouraging the children to be as independent as possible. This ranges from encouraging them to come into class on their own, learning to do fastenings on shoes and coats and dressing themselves to being organised with their own personal belongings. We would be grateful for any steps you can take to support your child (and us!) in this.

We are more than happy to have a chat with you about your child. Please feel free to come and see us whenever you need. If we can’t chat at the time, we will make arrangements so that we can do so as soon as possible.
