Bumblebees

 

Welcome to our class page!

 

We have had a great time so far in Bumblebees class. We have studied the rainforest, including finding out about British explorer Percy Fawcett and his search for the Lost City of Z. We have also looked at the Bronze Age, the Empire Windrush and biological classification.

Computing

Autumn half term, Bumblebee class have been learning all about movement to code a game using Scratch. Our learning came together to create games which can be played below. 

Take the bee to the flower to collect nectar, then to the hive. Use the arrow keys to move the bee's direction. Care must be taken to avoid those nasty predators!

Bumblebees are continuing to work hard in the run-up to Christmas. We have been studying the rise to power and untimely demise of Cleopatra VII, exploring desert biomes and working on our multiplication and division, amongst many other things.

We had a fantastic day celebrating Children in Need, including making some delicious rocky road to raise money for a great cause.

Autumn Term 2 - Computing

This half term we have become engineers - learning all about CAD (Computer Aided Design). We used the 3D modelling software Tinkercad to create a Christmas bauble composed of various simple 3D shapes. We learnt about different lines of perspective (X, Y and Z) and the correct terminology for 3D shapes. We printed out designs using a 3D printer. Check out the amazing results!

2023 is here and Bumblebees have spent the new year so far exploring their local area. This has included producing some fantastic pencil sketches of notable Norwich landmarks. For the remainder of the term, we will be comparing and contrasting our local area to the French Alps and Patagonia. After half-term, it'll be back to the Middle Ages as we study the Anglo-Saxons and contrast them with the Mayans.
