Hornet Scramble

The bees work together to overcome disruption in Honeywood caused by a nest of nasty noisy neighbours! Teamwork at its very best.  
The Honeywood hive is rudely disturbed when a nest of bullying, noisy Hornets moves nearby and starts stealing their honey.  The bees have to work together to find a solution to the problem and they work as a team to overcome the problem when it becomes noisier and noisier!  Bertie finds himself injured as a result of rescuing Beebee from the nasty Hornets, so his fellow bee’s make best use of their own resources to help him feel better and fix his broken wing.  The bees manage several difficult situations in this story but they eventually bring the community of bees safely home together.
An activity to develop and demonstrate entrepreneurial skills - putting into practice the learning from The Bumbles of Honeywood storybooks or supplementary teaching materials.
