Bumblebees Class

Welcome Bumblebees!

Welcome to Yeoford Primary School and welcome back after Christmas! We are very excited by the new year. We are settled after learning all the new routines at school and ready for a new term!

We have lots of exciting learning to look forward to. We will be talking about our different types of vehicles, things that move and how they move. In Bumblebee class we love tractors so we will start there! After the half term, we will start to look at growth and change. Here you can see our curriculum plan for the term which shows the learning intentions for the term. How we teach these may change as we follow the children’s interests. Please look out for all our inquisitive, play-based learning on Tapestry where you can regularly see what we have been learning and our next steps.
