Welcome to Busy Bees!
Busy Bees is our preschool room, where children learn and play during that very busy year leading up to starting school. In Busy Bees, the children develop their independence skills in preparation for their next step to big school. We have a very similar routine and room set up to school to help the children transition as smoothly as possible. We have daily focused sessions for Phonics and Maths, using rhymes and songs to reinforce the learning. We use the Read, Write Inc Phonics scheme to support our learning in Phonics, a scheme that is popular with many of our feeder schools.
Learning is centred around a "Story of the Week" with purposeful activities to extend on key topics and experiences. We value news from home which we encourage the children to share and make links in their learning and play between nursery and home.
We have many exciting events in Busy Bees throughout the year. We love to watch the children grow in confidence and really express themselves. This is always evident at our Nativity Play in December and our Graduation Celebration in the summer.
