The Kindy classes have been learning about Bees and discovering how they make honey. The learning journey has helped the children make sense of the world around them, fostered an interest for learning about Science and promoted respect for God’s creatures and living things.
The children have been curious about how bees make honey, how bees make beehives and how honey is collected from beehives. Their experiences have been extended by making a class beehive and investigating honey products. We have looked at the design of honeycomb from a beehive and the children enjoyed tasting, smelling and touching honey.
We loved making ‘Honey Joys’ for our Teddy Bears Picnic, they were delicious!
The children were inspired by the learning experience to respect their living environment. Through discovering the journey of the honey bee, they are learning to use information and communication technologies to investigate ideas and gaining an interest and appreciation in learning about Science.
