Omar, The Bees and Me English Planning Year 1

'Omar, the Bees and Me' English Planning Year 1


Welcome to our three-week fully resourced English planning based on ‘Omar, the Bees and Me’ by Helen Mortimer. These fifteen fully resourced English lessons have been specifically written for Year 1 children. Throughout the English scheme of work, the children will learn fascinating facts about bees and use their knowledge to write a persuasive poster to look after our bees! They will plant sunflower seeds to attract bees and then write a set of instructions for other people to follow in their excellent footsteps. The three weeks will culminate in the children writing a shape poem all about bees!  

Our English plans are buzzing with resources: teaching videos intricately linked to the text covering grammar concepts, differentiated activities, whiteboard slides, word banks and a whole hive of visual prompts and scaffolding for the learners in your class.  

This fully resourced English scheme of work is beautiful as a stand-alone unit of work, or it might be just what you are looking for to link your English lessons to your topic if you are studying ‘Animals including humans’ or ‘Minibeasts’.
