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.

Return to School

Monday, June 1, 2020

The wonderful creators at Twinkl have produced this kindly informative PowerPoint which are all aspects that your children may be thinking about if they are returning back to Busy Bees from tomorrow. If you feel it is suitable or will support your child you may want to share it with your child – but please do not feel you must.

If you are not returning to school tomorrow we are still thinking of you lots and would love to continue to hear from you. We are completing the same learning activities at school so we would love to share photographs and your success.

Wherever you are continuing your learning we know that you are all wonderful caterpillars that are transforming into beautiful Busy Bee’s butterflies wherever your learning might be taking place.
