Don’t Worry, ‘Bee’ Happy! - KS1- 08.06.20


This week we would like to focus our learning on Bees. Please complete as many of the suggested ideas as possible with the time and resources you have available.


Reading- Please look at the Bee related reading comprehensions provided and complete as many of the questions as you can in response to the information.


Reading Research- Share the bee power point provided. Then using the information complete your own bee fact file or information page to include as many interesting facts as you can. Some additional useful sites to explore are: Shropshire Wildlife Trust Bee Facts for Kids and www.soilassosiation.or/helpbees Honey Bee Facts.


Please see example information pages.


Creative writing- Once you have drawn the bee write a character description of your bee’s personality, appearance and behaviour. This description can be factual and informed by bee information or can be a completely imaginary description of a cute bee, whichever you prefer. Try to include as many interesting details about your bee as possible, real or imaginary.

Here is some extra information about bees to learn about!

Science/ Creative- Complete an observational drawing of a bee and label the insects body parts. This could be added to your info page or fact file.

This video shows you how to draw a busy bee in my Shoowaii style. What is Shoowaii? it my version of the Japaneses style - Kawaii. Kawaii means cute and that...

Choose from some of the suggested bee ideas below. There are many more examples online to choose from so have some with bee craft!




  • Complete counting in 2’s games and sequences.
  • Number bonds- There are 10 bees split between 2 hives, what are the possibilities? Represent the bees and hives practically if possible so the bees can be moved between the hives. You could use 2 plates and some buttons or sweets to be the bees.
  • E.g. 10 = 1 + 9, learners also draw a number line to represent the addition.
  • What other number facts do you know?
  • 10 = 9 + 1/ 10 – 9 = 1/ 10 – 1 = 9/ 9 + 1 = 10/ 1 + 9 = 10
  • What do we notice about the number sentences completed each time?
  • Increase difficulty by exploring number bonds to 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20
  • Measure- To create paper chains that are 1 metre (100cm’s) in length.
