Maya the Bee buzzed onto UK screens in January this year being shown on Tiny Pop three times a day during the week and twice at the weekend. This is a remake of the classic TV series Maya the Bee which was first aired in 1975 and is based on the 1912 book by Waldemar Bonsels ‘Maya and her adventures’. Maya is a young bee who has left her hive to discover the beauty and mysteries of nature. As she explores the meadow where she lives, she meets other insects living there, plays to her heart’s content and shares her joy with her friends! Her friends include her sidesick Willy (cue sniggers from kiddywinks), Flip the grasshopper, The Queen, Ben the dung beetle, Miss Cassandra (Maya’s teacher), Barry the fly and Imogen’s favourite Beatrice the butterfly.
Maya the Bee is a beautifully animated series that Joseph has become quite hooked on. It is shown on Tiny Pop (Sky 617, Virgin 737 and Freesat 605) at 8.15am, 1.30pm and 6pm weekdays and 10.30am and 6pm. There are plenty of printable activity sheets over on the Maya the Bee Facebook page as well.
