Free Trees for Schools and Communities Scheme

The Woodland Trust is a partner of the QGC and their Free Trees for Schools and Communities Scheme is a great way to get involved with tree planting. Across 2021 and 2022 they have over three million saplings in tree packs, available on a first come first served basis. Information on how to apply for the free saplings will be available through the Woodland Trust website  from June 2021.

Bees in the Curriculum

Everybody seems to care about bees these days but how much do we really know and understand?

Written for Key Stages 1 and 2, this teachers pack is a neat introduction to Bees and Minibeasts, Bee Products, The Beekeeper and Pollination.

The online pdf resources pack has three sections containing many usable worksheets. The headings are;

  • Understanding the world,
  • Science,
  • Science and the environment. 

We have used scientific section headings for usability. This doesn’t mean a waggle dance could not be a PE lesson, or label design couldn’t become an art class!

Do remember you have to be a BBKA member -  this is open to all schools members and all full members of the BBKA.

If you haven’t already, please get in touch with your local branch/ association to become a schools member
