Bears Blog (Resource Base)
Welcome to our blog! We hope to share all the wonderful things we are learning about in school.
The adults in Bears are Mr Mould, Mrs Bowyer, Mrs Mould, Mrs Buckland, Mrs Crosby and Ms. New. They are always happy to talk to mums and dads. They use Makaton signs to help us understand and help us with things we find difficult. Miss Dumbrell, Miss Doel and Mrs Evans help us at lunchtime.
Our classroom is bright and colourful. We have a sensory room, which is great for quiet time and a role play area. We sometimes bring our friends from our mainstream classes to share our special places.
Outside we have a covered play area which keeps us safe. We have sand, water play and sometimes the bikes to play with. Some of us go horse riding once a week which is great fun. Please come and see us, we might even let you go in our sensory room!
Autumn Term 2Please enjoy the Year One photos of their visit to Warleigh Lodge Farm in Bath.
Monday 15th October
Happy Monday to everyone. Just a quick update to keep you informed.
The children across all 3 year groups have continued to work hard in both their mainstream class and in the Bears classroom. Displays are now completed, showcasing some of the lovely work they have completed and hopefully you will be able to see this work when you come to parents evening (Wednesday and Thursday of this week).
All the children are taking part in Read, Write, Inc. lessons after assembly and the Reception children are now getting very familiar with the daily format. Following morning break the children complete a maths session, before lunch time at 12. Afternoons are devoted to topic based learning, including PE, music, art and design and history and geography. Again, as you already know, some of this learning takes part in the Bears classroom and some with the children's mainstream peers.
This week is looking particularly exciting with the opening of our new library on Wednesday, I'll say no more as I wouldn't like to spoil the surprise.
See you all on either Wednesday or Thursday for parent consultations and have a lovely week.
Friday 19th October
This week saw the opening of our magnificent library and the children were thrilled to use it on Thursday and Friday. We owe a huge thank you to Mrs Rylands who has painted fabulous pictures of different fairy tales and well known stories around the room. We also need to say thank you to our caretaker, Anthony, for his incredible construction work, and also many thanks to Mrs Newbury and Mrs Budge for their hard work and vision.
If you haven't yet had the delight of visiting the library, please take a look as soon as you can - you will be amazed.
Please enjoy the slide show below.
Autumn Term 1
Welcome to Class 5 and 6, otherwise known as the Bears Class.
We hope you have all had a lovely summer break and feel ready and raring to go in this new academic year. All the Bears have returned to school happy and well, including the new Reception children, who have settled like the little superstars they are. The children are now attending school full time and have already had time in their mainstream classes.
We have lots to look forward to over the coming months, not least of all our school trips next Friday (21st). Reception children are going to Victoria Art Gallery and Museum in Bath, Year 1 children are going to Warleigh Farm near Bath and Year 2 children will visit Westbury White Horse. All these trips support the different topics in each year group.
We look forward to keeping you informed of all the different things we do in school, so visit our Blog regularly and enjoy.
Don't forget to also visit the Blogs of your child's mainstream class for more information and photographs.
Year 2 trip to Westbury White Horse
The children had a wonderful time on Westbury White Horse, despite a few showers here and there. The views are spectacular and the windy weather was exhilarating. The children drew some lovely pictures and went for some very interesting walks. When they returned to school the children's kites flew really well in the windy weather. I think they are all looking forward to the next trip already.
Year R trip to The Victoria Art Gallery
The Reception children had a lovely time in Bath on their very first school trip. The children travelled to Bath on the coach, and on arrival their first port of call was a walk around the gardens in the centre of the city. Following a lovely look around and a well deserved snack, they then spent time in Victoria Art Gallery, where they could look at and discuss the paintings and then make a picture portrait of their own. All the Bears were very well behaved and had an enjoyable time.
