We are going to be Bee Keepers!

We had a very important visit from Bee1 and EsPartnership. Mark came to talk to us about bees. We learnt a scientific process and all about the importance of bees. Fun Fact – girl bees do ALL the work and the boys do absolutely nothing! He then told us the exciting news that we will be keeping our own bees at Gnoll…around 50,000 of them! WOW! We cannot wait and hope they produce some lovely honey and ECO-friendly wax too!

When we came in class we were reading our books.

And after we finished reading our books we started doing a food hunt to see how many things were healthy or unhealthy.

After that we did P:E and in P:E we were doing gymnastic moves with a friend and we used our ribbon moves while we were in the positions.

After that we went outside for a bit until it started tipping down so we went inside for the rest of our play some did colouring and some did drawing.

Next we talked about bullying and how we can prevent it. And for anti-bullying week we did a jigsaw piece with all of our favourite things in it.
