Contributions to the 'Wow' Board

Thank you to the parents who have been sharing information about their child's achievements on our 'Wow' board.  We have got some children who have started swimming lessons, others have been counting to 12 and another child has counted in French.  Please continue to share your child's achievements with us.

Fruity Friday

From Friday 27th January, every Friday at Busy Bees will be a Fruity Friday.  We would like to encourage the children to experience different fruit to that they would normally eat.  To do this, we ask that children bring a piece of fruit to the morning or afternoon session - something they eat normally, something they would like to try or something they've seen in the Supermarket which they have been interested in.  Although we are hoping for some more unusual fruits, more popular fruits such as apples and bananas will be just as appreciated.  The children will be talkin

Share our story times on a Thursday afternoon!!

From Thursday 26th January, we would like to give parents the opportunity to join their child for our afternoon story and singing session on a Thursday afternoon.  Please arrive at Busy Bees at 2:30pm to join your child in listening to a story and singing some popular action songs and nursery rhymes.  If this proves to be popular, we are hoping to extend it to other afternoons as well. 

Book Sharing at Busy Bees

We have some lovely books at Busy Bees which we love reading to the children.  We would like Parents, Carers, Grandparents and other family members to have the opportunity of sharing some of our books with the children.  At the end of every session, we will have a selection of books for parents and carers to browse through and borrow to read at home.  We ask that you fill in the date, title of the book and the child's name in the 'Book Borrowing' notebook so we can account for the books.  If you would like to borrow a book at the end of the afternoon session, please

Fundraiser - Pampered Chef Party

We are hoping to raise some much needed funds for new toys and resources for the children.  We particularly need new bikes, cars and scooters for physical play as well as resources to support the children's literacy and mathemetical development.  Jodie and Bev are holding a Pampered Chef party on Monday 20th February from 7:30pm at Busy Bees.  If you would like to attend, then please speak to Jodie and Bev at the start of your child's session.

'Wow' Board!

We now have a 'Wow' board at Busy Bees which is on the outside wall where parents wait before sessions begin.  Has your child achieved something at home recently?  Have they used the toilet?  Have they slept in their own bed? or Have they counted to 10?  If you have anything exciting to tell us then please share it by writing it on a post it note.  Allow us to celebrate your child's achievements and let us congratulate them at circle time.  The post it notes will be filed in your child's learning journey so you will always have a record of them.

Letters and Sounds - sound of the week

Busy Bees follows the Letters and Sounds programme for learning phonics through a multi-sensory approach.  We have a 'Sound of the Week' and children aged 3 and over will take part in short, playful activities involving that sound.  Activities will incorporate games, books, rhymes, messy play and much more.  We encourage parental involvement by asking parents to bring in an item from home beginning with the sound of the week.  This week, our sound is 'm'.  We could see some marshmallows, mice, mushrooms or even some Mummies!! 

Busy Bees AGM

We are holding our AGM on Tuesday 10th January at 6:30pm.  The meeting will be held at Busy Bees and children are welcome to attend.  The committee consists of a group of parents who are all volunteers and we are currently seeking new members.  We are also looking for new fundraising ideas so come along and show your support!  We look forward to seeing you there.

Adverse Weather

Busy Bees aims to stay open during any unexpected bad weather over the winter.  However, should safety be comprimised due to heavy snowfall, then we may have to take the decision to close.  If this is the case, please keep a look out on here for confirmation of the closure or listen to BBC Hereford and Worcester or Wyvern.  Alternatively, you can ring the mobile for a recorded message.  We thank you for your cooperation.
