Buzz about Anglia – Bee Adventurous

In January 2021, we launched our ‘Buzz about Anglia’ challenge to celebrate our 50th birthday. The challenge includes 6 themes, you can find more about the challenge and the idea behind it here Buzz About Anglia challenge.

Bee Adventurous is one of the 6 themes and will be the focus for the months of July and August. However, for those members that want to get this theme completed before then or wish to plan long term, we have selected a number of activities to get you started.

Bee Adventurous – Have a new adventure or try a new activity.

This theme encourages members to try a new adventure. All adventures are different, it could be an indoor or outdoor activity, it could be visiting somewhere new or simply a different walk. You can use the suggested activities within this blog to inspire you, but also feel empowered to come up with your own suggestions and make it your own.

If you are doing this as a unit or group, ask your members what they would like to do. Don’t worry if it’s something you know nothing about, there will be advice available to you and people who can help.

Activities 

Take a walk in the park. Learn the name of 3 trees you hadn’t identified before. Are there any wildflowers in bloom?  Can you name them? Are there birds singing? Write down all the things you can hear, see and smell.

Get a map of England, close your eyes and pick out a random area. Explore that area on Google Maps, StreetView or a similar app.  Where would you like to visit?  Where could you buy sweets? Where could you buy a coffee?  Did you find the toilets? 

Try something adventurous everyday for a week. You could choose things like:

  • wear a different hair style.

  • walk a different way to school or work.

  • try a new food.

  • listen to a new piece of music or band

  • learn something new

  • try a new dance move

  • learn a new knot
