Class 2 visits our bee hive

A visit to the school beehive is always popular and it’s always interesting to see what the bees are carrying into the hive.
The children can see all of the different coloured pollens and how the bees congregate around the entrance before marching in with their harvest. The hive has expanded to occupy about half of the frames, most of them full of brood and more recently some honey is being stored in some new white wax combs. There might be a harvest for us at the end of the Summer if we’re lucky.class2-bees
