The Bumbles of Honeywood

The Bumble family meet with their fellow Honeywood residents in the Town Hall and demonstrate the art of networking.
The Bumble family of Honeywood live in a hive under an apple tree in a wild flower meadow full of colour and sweet petals. They are part of a community of creatures who live and work together to create yummy, runny honey. In The Bumbles of Honeywood storybook, we are introduced to Betty and Barry Bumble and their children – Bella, Bobby, twins Betsy and Blue and baby Beebee. The family takes a trip to the town hall where they meet new creatures such as the grasshoppers, caterpillars, ladybirds and dragonflies. They realise that although creatures might look different to themselves, they are the same inside, with big hearts, and they are kind and loving. They learn skills to help introduce themselves and Betty and Barry do some networking which is great for business!
An activity to develop and demonstrate entrepreneurial skills - putting into practice the learning from The Bumbles of Honeywood storybooks or supplementary teaching materials.
