Dame Ellen Pinsent School


Bumblebees have had an amazing two weeks! Our proud to be me week has been filled with fun activities, so that they can become familiar with new faces and new staff.  

Now that the bees have settled, we will follow the ‘Woodlands’ curriculum pathway which focuses on the national curriculum, but makes teaching and learning of it appropriate relevant and accessible to our learners.

In maths, we will be looking at shapes and spaces, science will focus on chemical reactions making lava lamps and English we will be looking at the book Aliens love underpants.

5 sessions of English and 4 sessions of math’s (including functional skills) will take place weekly. Daily theralympics will focus on physical development and regular teaching of a range of greater emotions will take place.  

For our Topic we will be looking at famous sculptures and artists, giving opportunities for creativity and expressions through art. PE will focus on team activates and PSHE we will explore feelings and emotions. Bumblebees will develop independence, focusing on healthy and physical activates for well-being.

We will learn to express views and have our own voice, broaden and contextualize knowledge and problem solve. 

Our learning journey will be shared through Dojo.
