10 Jun Save the Bees!
Lemon bubble had a little gatecrasher during their break time on Tuesday! While some students were outside playing, a very tired bee fell into their game. After it became clear that the bee friend was exhausted and unable to fly, Miss Jolliffe and some of the children decided to move the bee to a safe space and try to revive him with a cocktail of sugar and water.
Since 1900, the UK has lost 13 species of bee and 35 are under threat of extinction. If you spot a struggling bee, you can help it by mixing 2 tablespoons of white sugar with 1 tablespoon of water and putting it on a spoon for the bee to reach.
Our girls stayed with the bee, willing him to drink up, until he was able to crawl off into the lavender and eventually fly away. What wonderful citizens of the world!
