This week we focused on the amazing insect honeybees.  We looked at the important roles the queen, drones and worker bees have in the hive. Though bees may be small, they play a big role in keeping our planet healthy. We discussed the importance of bees and how they help fruit and vegetables grow through pollination. We spoke about the different things we can do to help the bees, as without them, many plants and creatures would disappear.

We had a fun filled week playing in the ‘beehive’ under the stairs, tending to the babies and keeping the hive tidy.

It was a royal affair in the letter room with many queens and other members of royalty coming to visit. We talked about Queen Camilla’s love of books and discussed what jobs we thought she did at Buckingham Place and what we would do if we were queen for a day.

The children listened to Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ and learnt the ‘wiggle dance’ that bees do to communicate to the other bees. Thankfully bees communicate this message well, our ‘bees’ on the other hand, were laughing so much that the directions to where the flowers were may have become a bit muddled!

A big thank you to everyone who came to Nursery’s open day on Thursday. The children were very excited to show parents, grandparents, siblings and their nannies ‘their world’, the activities they enjoy in Nursery and of course their art in their folders and on the walls.

A lot of fun was had as we participated in the Year 6 Bazaar. Year 6 outdid themselves creating fun games and challenges for all of use to enjoy. All the money collected went to Cancer Research UK (Brest Cancer) – a charity chosen by the Year 6 girls.
