Busy Bees 2017 - 2018

Mrs Cusick

Teacher in Busy Bees Class. This is a mixed age class containing year 1 and year 2 children.

Welcome to Busy Bees.

My name is Mrs. Cusick and I am the teacher of Year 1 and year 2 in Busy Bees' Class. In Busy Bees we make learning fun and exciting, always striving for excellence and ensuring every child reaches their full potential.  Our class' teaching assistant is Mrs. Taylor.

We manage this through the following:

  •    Focused group teaching
  •    Valuing every child
  •    Small class setting- approximately 24 children
  •     Learning outside the classroom
  •    A broad, and balanced themed curriculum which is relevant to the lives of our children.

Class News

This half term we have been busy finding out about non-fiction text and writing our own information text about animals to use for future reference. In our topic work we have been learning about our bodies, healthy eating and keeping safe. In art we made clay models and in design technology we designed and created a container for a purpose.

In Year 1 and Year 2 we follow the Letters and Sounds 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.

We recommend that reading is carried out at least 4 times per week for approximately 15 min per session.
