The Wonderful World of Bees
Year 4 recently took part in a workshop on the Wonderful World of Bees where they learnt all about Honey Bees.....
Year 4 recently took part in a workshop on the Wonderful World of Bees in King Henry's Walk Garden in Islington this week. They learnt all about honey bees and why they are such an important part of our ecosystem. They went on a fact hunt around the beautiful gardens, got to try explore a beehive and made beeswax candles. The children learnt about how bees are attracted to Lavender, Thyme and Rosemary. They were able to smell the herbs and discuss why the honey made from the different herbs may have a different taste.
After the children had learnt new facts about bees, they created poems using alliteration and onomatopoeia. Here is Anthony's poems.
The Boss Bee
The big bee no one could beat
I'm the strongest on the street
Collecting dazzling marvellous nectar
Dragging, booming, zooming through the trees
to the hive back to hide
from the hunters so I don't die
Making honey, looking funny, it's so sunny
while the Queen makes babies
while I make honey
by Anthony Year 4
