It’s All About Bees

All about Bees
Lilly Beaman (7 years)

What a great day we had! The sun was shining, the flowers were blooming and the bees were buzzing. We played games, drew pictures, learnt interesting things about the bees and even danced like a bee to send messages. Many children came and took part in the activities – even my little sister Daisy picked a flower and looked for pollen, and she is only 18 months!
Tish, the lady that organised it was very good – she showed us tools we use to look after our bees – like the protective costume, smoker and a real bee honeycomb. She was also very kind to us, even when my little brother nearly ate the wax candle.
We had cakes and drinks and I was very happy that everyone liked our cupcakes- me and my mum decorated them with little bees and I cut all the leaves and daisies by myself!
A very great day! Thank you!
