Busy Bees at Gingham Pre-School

The children at Gingham Pre-School have been very inquisitive, learning all about mini beasts, but Bees in particular. The children have been planting up their own Bee Meadow using wildflower seeds in forest school and in the planters in our outdoor environments too, we are hoping the bees will visit the flowers when they have grown “to collect their pollen”. Children have taken on the responsibility of looking after the seeds, watering them, and watching them grow, observing the changes day to day.  To enhance the children’s learning, we have used resources such as factual books, Mini beast bingo and stories about mini beasts. One of our friends brought in two bee nests for us to observe too from their garden after the bees had finished with them, one even had a small honeycomb inside!
