In Carpenter bees there is a mixture of year 5s and 6s who are taught by Miss Dodd with the help of the teaching assistant Mrs Rae. We always try our best to challenge each other and create a fun learning environment.
Our classroom is a bright and stimulating place to be. Every morning kicks off with a Maths starter to get our brains working, we then move on to our new Maths learning. After break we move on to English, where we produce fantastic pieces of work! We try to link our English into other subjects and topics. Some of the fun and exciting topics we will be looking at this year are space, around the world, Tudors and at the movies!
In Carpenter bees, the children are encouraged to become as independent as possible and begin to take on more responsibility as the oldest children in our school. They have enjoyed taking on tasks such as being play leaders, supervising games and equipment at playtime and being “buddies” for the new children in Reception, helping them to settle into school.
