The Bee Keeper Visit
Class 1 have been learning all about bees this term as part of our Talk for Writing story ‘The Sleepy Honeybee’. We were very lucky to have a local bee keeper visit us and bring his bees! He showed us his bee and their portable hive. He told us that up to 50,000 bees can live in one hive in the summer and they collect nectar from flowers to make their honey. He also brought in some honey, for us to try, and his bee keeper suit, which some children got the opportunity to try on. He also brought in some old honeycomb so the children could look at it closely and know what it feels like.
It was such a lovely and informative visit, so thank you for visiting us!
