Little Bees (Appendix 1)
All their friends are happy too
Three little bees
they fly around their hive
up in the trees.
with that happy buzzing sound
Drinking cups of tea
buzz buzz buzz
that they sat on their knees.

All the little bees

One little bee
live in harmony
said, Why dont we
they help each other
go see our neighbours
and care for each other
and offer them some tea!
(Adapted from Little Bees by Alisha Lee)

They left their seats

and got their treats.

Then flew to their friends

up and down all the streets.

Three little bees

happy on trees.

Feel its good to help

their friends in need.
