Bee Menu by Louise Spilsbury


Bee Menu by Louise Spilsbury

The Big Picture series launches with 16 titles for KS1 all about what is going on all around the world, split into four high interest topics. Find out how other people around the world live/lived; extreme animals habitats or weather across the globe; faraway homes made of ice and much, much more. Each book within this Key Stage 1 series will provide a number of jumping off points in a high interest, accessible way, with which to cover the 'big curriculum picture'. Eventually backed up by teacher notes comprising background information and teaching notes re: how to use the books to cover statutory national curriculum key skills. Bee Menu provides a first look at why these creatures are so important for our planet.


'The plight of honeybees (and all our bees, in fact) is well known, so it is good to see a new book for KS1 children about these vital insects. This book has all the features needed for an early fact book, to enable children to learn research techniques...with its colourful pages, good sized colour photographs and just the right amount of information.'
