This half term, Class 1 have been identifying all the features needed to write an explanation text. We learned about honey on our farm visit and studied how it was made in class, resulting in presenting an explanation as a flow chart.
We then wrote explanations about bees with a focus on Honey bees. We were fortunate enough to have Mrs Allen organise a visit from Bee Keepers (apiarists) who told us many fascinating facts and explained a great deal about how wonderful, and important bees really are...a truly amazing experience which everybody thoroughly enjoyed!
A few of us even got to try on the special protective clothing and head veil. The class room smelled of honey for the rest of the day!
