Bees Class 2021


Welcome to Bees Class!


My name is Miss Oxendale and I am extremely excited to welcome your children into life at Longshaw.

We are incredibly lucky to have Miss Ali and Mrs Talbot working with us in Bees Class.



Things to know and remember:



Please don’t forget that children’s book bags need to be in school daily and reading records should be signed to show that children are reading at home 5 times a week. Please check your book bags for letters and information. 


Reception children will have two PE sessions a week and full PE kits needs to be in school for this.


Earrings should not be worn for school in line with the uniform policy.


You can also check your child's SEESAW page for pictures and information of what we have been getting up to into school. 





Where would you like to go and how would you get there?



What an exciting time we are going to have, the children are going to become explorers!


Children will continue to take part in daily phonics lessons. They will be given plenty of opportunities to apply their learning through lots of different stimulus. This half term each child will become an explorer as we visit different story settings through texts such as Back to Earth with a Bump, Lost and Found, Commotion in the Ocean and Rumble in the Jungle.


In maths sessions we will continue to develop the understanding of numbers within 5 and use this knowledge to explore numbers 6, 7 and 8. We will explore one more and one less than a given number.


Children will continue to learn new vocabulary they are exposed to through stories. Within our carpet sessions in class we will begin to develop the children’s ability to take turns when they are sharing their ideas and listen to their friends when they are talking, responding to their ideas.


Children will continue to explore colour to create their own paintings of different settings. They will create their own mode of transport to travel to their desired setting. We will hopefully be able to invite you into school at some point to see what we've been learning.




Please feel free to ask any questions!

I am on the door in the morning and at home time. I am happy to help the best that I can. We are excited to welcome your children into Longshaw and for us to begin our learning journey together.
