Bumblebee Class

Welcome to Bumblebee Class!

This term in Year 1 we are leaning about one of the most famous engineers - Isambard Kingdom Brunel!  Brunel has had such an enormous impact on Bristol: the Great Western Railway, the Suspension Bridge and of course, the SS Great Britain.  We are going to find use his great engineering feats to explore: journeys by sea in English, being an engineer and designing our own bridges in Design and Technology as well as thinking about Brunel's historical significance to our city.

In Maths we are going to continue working on the 4 operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division with a focus on number bonds and doubling and halving.  We are going to really challenge our thinking with lots of problem solving and reasoning.


We are also planning on making the most of the sunshine with dancersize twice a week alongside our usual PE lessons.  

A busy but exciting term to finish our amazing Year 1 adventure.
