Y2 East Devon Beekeeper's Visit

Year 2 were lucky enough to have the East Devon Beekeeper's Society visiting us in school. We were taught all about the importance of honey bees and shown how they work together in the hive to produce honey. We learnt about how they collect nectar and pollen; honey bees even perform a "waggle" dance to communicate to the other bees where to fly to collect the necatar!

We saw a bee hive and learnt the different names of the hive; sampled some more local honey and some children even dressed up as a beekeeper!
