Bee Project in 1st/2nd Class

Posted by Ms. Naughton On March - 8 - 2024

1st and 2nd class have been very busy bees learning all about the honey bee.  Lucky for us here in 1st and 2nd class, we have a bee expert in our midst – Conor Jennings in 2nd class! Conor’s family have their own bee farm locally.  We were delighted when Conor brought in some of his bee protection clothing, bee food, smoker and honey frame to present to the class.  We learnt a lot from Conor about taking care of bees, the honey making process and and it was fantastic to see some of these items needed up close!

In SESE, we learnt some interesting facts about the honey bee, it’s life cycle and labelling different parts of the bee anatomy.  We also learnt the importance of bees in helping to pollinate our flowers.  Without bees, we wouldn’t have lots of delicious fruit and vegetables to eat!  Later in Spring, we hope to plant some more bee-friendly plants in our school sensory garden.

In Art, the children created some beautiful crafts for display and they really brighten up our classroom.  Well done everyone!

Hello Spring!

Snowdrops are often heralded as the first sign of Spring where they bloom as early as January and February, whatever the weather.

This week, the girls and boys in 1st and 2nd class enjoyed creating snowdrop pictures in Art.

Well done everyone!
