Busy Bees 2023 - 2024


Welcome to Busy Bees.

My name is Mrs. Pose and I am the teacher of Year 1 and Year 2. Our class teaching assistants are Miss Duffy, Miss Jones, Mrs Walmsley, Mrs Parkinson and Mrs Prior.  In Busy Bees we make learning fun and exciting, always striving for excellence and ensuring every child reaches their full potential.  

We manage this through the following:

  •    Focused group teaching
  •    Valuing every child
  •    Small school setting 
  •    Learning outside the classroom
  •    A broad and balanced themed curriculum which is relevant to the lives of our children
  •    Assess to Continous Provision areas to consolidate learning

Class News

Each half term we choose a new theme that interests the children. This year we will be covering the following topics:

  • Autumn 1 - Animals
  • Autumn 2 - Fire, Fire
  • Spring 1 - Growth and Green Fingers
  • Spring 2 - Family Album
  • Summer 1 - Great Outdoors
  • Summer 2 - Robots


PE takes place on a Tuesday and Wednesday in Spring 2. Pupils may come to school ready in their kits. A reminder that PE kit in warmer weather is red shorts and a white t-shirt and plain grey, black or red tracksuit with a white t shirt in colder weather. All children need trainers for PE lessons. Gymnastics lessons are taught in bare feet in the studio. 


In Year 1 and Year 2 we follow the Red Rose Phonics Scheme.

In Year 1 the age related phase is phase 4 and phase 5

In Year 2 the age related phase is phase 6.
