Very special visitor


Yesterday we were lucky enough to have a very special bee keeper come and talk to us because we are learning about insects and bee's. The special bee keeper was Maddison's Grandad. He has lots of bees and he breeds Queen bee's.

The bee suit he is wearing is to keep him safe when he is around the bee's. 


This is a picture of the Queen Bee who is marked with red dot. The bee keepers put coloured dots on the Queen bees to show the age of the bee. 

This is the bee's process growing.
These are different kinds of honey. Did you know that there are different colours and types of honey because of the different trees the nectar was collected from.

  5. I liked the bee keeper coming to visit us because we got to learn a lot about how important bees are. We learnt that the boy bee don't sting and the queen bee has a little dot on her head and it has a colour on it and that's how they know how old the bee is and the queen bee grows larger than the other bees.
