Home Learning Busy Bees

In the event of school closure we have prepared a range of activities for all of the children. If the children are in school these activities will be sent home with a book and any necessary online resource logins. If your child is in school these will be sent home when required. If your children are unwell or your family is self-isolating, books are available for collection from the school office.

Please check this page regularly for updates and additional information.

Please find below a document outlining the activities that we have identified.

Useful Websites to Support Home Learning


Swallowfield Busy Bees is your local pre-school and has been established for over 30 years. We are fully integrated into the main school and positively support the transition into Swallowfield Lower School.

Places are available for children aged 2 years until they start school at 4+.

Most children move from Busy Bees to Swallowfield Lower School (please contact the school direct for the school admissions policy).

We are very proud of our OFSTED inspection reports, which are available upon request.

Central Bedfordshire’s Childcare Development Team and their Early Years Advisory Team support Swallowfield Busy Bees.


  • Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self assured.
  • Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
  • Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers.
  • Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates

The framework we follow covers the education and care of all children in Early Years Provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.

Thank you for these lovely pieces of homework we received this week from a few of our Transition children.

We asked them to tell us what they were looking forward to in September when they started school and we can tell they are very excited.

Busy Bees Home Learning WB 29th June 2020

Hello Everyone !

We hope you have had a lot of fun with the Home Learning so far. This week we are learning all about The Seaside and have added some of the activities we have done in the classrooms with you before.

Making paper ice creams and seeing how many scoops of ice cream you can fit on your cone should be a lot of fun.

We are going to do this at Busy Bees and will post our pictures on the website for you to see.

We have been very busy in the garden this week getting it ready for your return in September – we are looking forward to seeing you all again either in foundation or back at Busy Bees.

Keep sending those pictures in for us we love to see them.
