Saplings Nature Learning
Buzzing with excitement!

This week the children’s adventure began with learning about the life cycle of Bees and their various roles within the hive. They visited the Somerhill Bee Hives in the orchard and played a fun game learning how Bees collect nectar from flowers. During snack time, they enjoyed a tasty honey treat.

The children sang a Bee song and danced the waggle dance just like real Bees! They discovered that honeycomb is made of lots of hexagons joined together. Using natural materials, they created their own honeycomb structures.

Our Saplings crafted wooden Bees, cutting wood with saws and hammering on wings. Finally, they explored Somerhill with their Bees, searching for flowers, pollen, and nectar. Everyone enjoyed learning so much about these amazing little creatures!
