Year 5 Visit Walpole Park
The children had a fantastic session at Walpole Park. They learnt about pollination and how this occurs through an interactive game where they role played being bees themselves! It was hard work! The children then carried out a bee observation, recognising that there are actually hundreds of different bees aswell as observing the bees in the hive and tasting the local honey. The children all planted a seed in a pot to take home in order to entice bees into their own garden when the plant begins to flower. The session highlighted that bees supply over 1/3 of our food crops each year but they are now an endangered species. We look forward to investigating into this more as a year group, learning about the ways we can help save the bees and prevent them from dying out!
