Bee Day

This term, our activities have centered around a theme of “Food and Drink”.  In line with this theme, we were visited by Wally Thrale from Bedford Bee Keepers Association.  Wally talked to an audience of some 40 parents and children about the role of bees in food production and of, course, where honey comes from!

Following Wally’s talk, our families took part in an illustration workshop led by Jessica Albarn (author and illustrator) for whom bees are an enduring passion, featuring in much of her published work.
