Bees Class



Hello, my name is Miss Lee and I am the class teacher within Bees Class.
We also have Miss Davis working with us. 

We are all very excited to be welcoming the new children at Longshaw and have lots of exciting things planned!

This is our class page where you can find out all the information about the term and any dates you will need.

We also have class blog where there will be weekly videos, photos and activities for you and the children to enjoy.


Summer Two

Will you tell me a story?

This half term our literacy will be focused around telling stories. We will be looking at some traditional tales such as The Three Little Pigs and The Gingerbread Man. Using Talk 4 Writing and Tales Toolkit the children will explore the stories, looking at the characters, setting, problem and solution and using this to write their own version of the story. The children will continue to develop their knowledge of phonics through daily phonics lessons and apply this to their writing. 

In maths we will be building upon addition and subtraction knowledge to help solve problems. We will be looking at the strategies and resources that can be used to help them solve problems that will include halving and doubling too. Towards the end of the term we will be recapping our learning of shape and time. 

Throughout this term we will see the children visiting from nursery getting ready for their transition into the school next year. The reception children will be given a buddy from the nursery and they will show them what life is like in reception at Longshaw. We will also be working to get the Bees class ready to transition in to Year 1! 



How you can help at home :)


Read with your child every night, talk through and discuss the story and characters. 
Counting regularly with your child, both forwards and backwards. If they read every night they will get dojos in school as a reward.
Ask your child about their day, we do lots of different activities throughout the day and they will love to share.
Ensure your child's book bag is in school everyday.
Complete the homework given out on a Friday with them, this reflects the learning throughout the week.


Please use the handwriting sheet given on Parent's Evening to practise handwriting daily with your child at home. If you would like a sheet please ask at the door.


Please ensure your child brings in their book bag every day. Also make sure that you check these bags every night for any messages or letters that might have been given out. Please can you make sure that you label all of your child’s clothes, this includes all parts of their uniform, PE kits, coats and shoes, as this helps us to find the owner of the item much faster!! We have PE on Wednesdays, please ensure your child's PE kit is in school.


You will receive newsletters and information from school regularly, however, if you have and questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to me.

Thank you

Miss Lee
