A Buzzing Curriculum
The Honey Bee class have loved exploring their class animal. During Transition week, the children experienced a visit to the school’s apiary and some children had the confidence to hold a frame from the hive. As the year progresses, the children will become more involved in the life of bee-keeping and complete inspections of the hives under close supervision.
Since September, the class have been learning about the parts of a hive, the jobs bees do in and out the hive, the anatomy of a honey bee and also got to try some honey from the school's hive as a reward for their hard work.
