Becoming a Bee Keeper

As part of our Biodiversity investigations we got the chance to explore bees and what is involved in being a bee keeper. We got to look at bee masks that protect the keepers from getting stung. Ms Wynne is an expert and took us through some very important tips. We got to see a bee hive and what kind of things the bees make. Here are some pictures of third class taking in all the exciting information:

  2. Turn off the lights and whiteboard when you are leaving the room.
  3. If it is bright outside, turn off the lights in the classroom.
  4. Wash out your milk carton and put it in the Green Bin.
  5. Put in the plug while you are washing paintbrushes etc

At home:
  1. Try to take shorter showers, it doesn't need to take an hour!
