Welcome to Bees!
Welcome to the Bee's homepage!
We are really excited about the new school year....please remember that due to the building works and renovations in Bees, we will not be opening with the rest of the school, but will be open on Monday 10th September. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
In Bees we go outside throughout the year to continue our learning. Our little Bees will need wellies and warm coats, all labelled with your child's name. Every day the children recieve milk and fruit, but we would like all children to have their own water bottle too.
We have a few initiatives that we have in Bees and would like to share them with you...
Tasty Tuesday Treat - This will always involve food! Either a group of children (on a rota) or all children will take part to prepare and eat something. It might be painting toast, buttering and eating it, it might be making a fruit salad etc. This will change every time and will happen most Tuesdays with a member of staff.
Bertie - Bertie is our resident Bear and likes to enjoy visiting his friends! Bertie was with us last year and he enjoyed spending weekends with everyone. Children then shared their experiences of Bertie with all their friends.
Star of the day - Again this was an initiative from last year. Every day a child from Bees will be chosen to be the star of the day. This means they help the teacher during register, help with other jobs and is always first in the line when they are the star. We like to award the star of the day for varying reasons...sometimes it is something we have noticed and sometimes it is given for something they have done at home. We love hearing from parents about what our Bees get up to when they are not with us!
Rainbow Challenge - Each day a challenge is set for the children if they want to accept it! If they complete the challenge they receive a coloured lollipop stick. The aim of the rainbow challenge is to collect all the coloured sticks to create a rainbow! Prizes will be given to those children with 5 lollipop sticks. Last year, the children loved the prizes - mostly the crayons and pens!
PE will start the first week back. The children will be learning to follow instructions to play simple games. We will be encouraging the children to change themselves. Please make sure that black shorts and a white t-shirt are in school. It would be really helpful if all the clothes are labelled. As it will be indoors, the children will be bare foot and therefore will not need plimsoles or trainers.
Stay and Play
The first Stay and Play date is Monday 8th October. It will be 9:00-10:00 and will be an informal and enjoyable experience to share what your child does in Bees!
We will change the day each time to allow as many parents to attend as possible. Watch this space for more dates to follow!
