Busy Bees 2021 - 2022


Welcome to Busy Bees.

My name is Mrs. Cusick and I am the teacher of Year 1 and Year 2. Our class teaching assistants are Mrs. Taylor and Miss Jones. Mrs Walmsley works in our class as a volunteer.  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
