It's been quite a year for bees and wasps! The children had a chance to confront some of their fears and answer some of their questions when our beekeeping friends, the May Family, visited to show us about these amazing creatures.
Several children got to try on the beekeeper suit, and check out the smoker that puffs smoke into the hive, making the bees leave temporarily.
The children learned that the bees have a long tongue which sucks nectar up from the flowers.
We all enjoyed trying honey fresh from the hive!
