A Buzzing Curriculum
The honey bees have been busy during the summer holidays bringing in lots of pollen and creating lots of stores of honey. Mrs Hodgson has been attending to the bees ensuring all is well in the hives and collecting some of the honey. Some supers will be left on the hives ready for the class to remove and extract in September.
We’ve had fun jarring the honey which is on sale in the school office!
As winter is approaching, it is important to ensure our bees are ‘winter ready’. We have checked they still have some supplies of honey and also added a mouse guard to stop them trying to convert a hive into a warm home for them over the winter!
During this month, the bees are checked on from time to time. We check that they have enough supplies and sugar candy to stop them having to leave the hive to forage in the cold weather.
