We spent a whole morning learning about bees yesterday. We read this great book and learnt that honeybees eat nectar and turn it into honey in their stomach. We also talked about the importance of bees and pollination, queen bees, nectar, pollen, hexagon cells in a bees nest, the head, abdomen, thorax, eyes and antennae of bees, lifespan and distances covered by honeybees in their search for flowers.
The elder two leant more in-depth facts about honeybees while Panda Girl painted a bee hive...
...and The Boy painted a rather large queen bee.
And we made this display with all their efforts
Monkey Girl's Honey Bee Garden seeds have sprouted
Panda Girl and The Boy made cute spring kites...
...and we made a fun pond to role-play with.
The Boy made this great Easter garden at nursery and is growing a courgette in a tube apparently!
We spent the afternoon transforming the patio into a water and sand play area. Hooray for sunnier weather!
