The BEEHIVE

WITH

Welcome

Hello Everybody,

Mrs Turner and Mrs Wallwork are now hosting the Beehive page- with the help of Mrs Gul and Mrs Quarashi of course!

The Beehive Virtual Classroom is a place where the children can consolidate what they have learning in the classroom. Have a good look at some of our new activities below.

Don't forget, the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pages still contain lots of learning activities for you too. So make sure you check those out as well as this page!


Tales Told by your Teachers

We have left our stories on as we know you enjoy listening to them, and we will add some more very soon.

* Autumn 2 *

We have returned after half term rested and ready to take on all the new learning.

The Beehive children have been focusing on the Number System and rehearsing one more and one less.

We have created 2D shape pictures and identified the properties of simple shapes within the environment.

You can contact the Beehive teachers and send us your work to the email address below:

Autumn 2

Don't forget to check out your year group pages which have lots of important information and your home-learning tasks for each half term. Each task that is set by your teacher can be differentiated for every learner. Just do your best!

The Beehive page is here to supplement those activities and give you additional ideas.

Let's Get Creative

Poppy Craft Idea:

  • Give children an empty plastic bottle and some red paint. Children to dip the bottom of the bottle into the paint and print it onto a piece of paper. Create a poppy picture, or alternatively try putting the poppies in a circle to create a poppy wreath. Children can paint the black centre of each poppy, as well as the green leaves.

Communication and Interaction

Memory Game

The activityPaper Plate Big Alphabet Memory Game by Frugal Fun For Boys and Girls

Communication and language area(s) of development: Turn-taking, social interaction, attention & listening

In a nutshell – A kingsize variation of the good old pair matching game. Take several paper plates and markers and write some letters if you want your little ones to practice literacy or draw shapes, animals and other items if it’s time to build their vocabulary.

What you need

  • A dozen paper plates

  • Marker pens

Knowledge and Understanding

Understanding of the World is about how children get to know about themselves, other people, the place where they live and about all aspects of the environment.

  • Try looking into a mirror and then drawing a self portrait. Name the features and think carefully about where you need to position everything. Send your pictures to our Beehive email address.
