Friday Writing: Lifecycle of a Bee

**With your adult, read and discuss the PPT about the lifecycle of a bee. Then put the pictures of the stages of the lifecycle in order using the sheet below or draw your own pictures! Talk through the different stages and try and explain what is happening using some of the key vocabulary. Finally, writ a few sentences to explain some of the bee lifecycle.**

Key questions:

How is it similar to the life cycle of butterfly?

How is it different to the life cycle of a butterfly?

What are the different stages?

Which kind of bee lays the egg?

Key vocabulary: egg, cell, drone bee, worker bee, queen bee, larvae, pupa, adult


Here are some example sentences to read to your child if they get stuck with what stage comes next.

- FIRST the queen lays a single egg in a cell.

- THEN the egg hatches into larvae and is fed bee bread.

- NEXT the cell is sealed with wax.

- AFTER THAT the pupa spins a cocoon and it grows legs, arms and wings

- FINALLY, it’s a bee.


Things to remember to be a good writer:

  • Think about your letter formation (use letter families poster)
  • Are there any phase 3 digraphs/digraphs you can use in the words? (You could use your phase 3 sound mat)
  • Any longer words, remember to chop them up into parts to make it easier to sound out for writing
  • Finger spaces needed between each word
