THE HONEY BEE DVD
Keen to teach future generations about bees and beekeeping, and evolving from her successful beekeeping presentations to schools, Kirsty has developed an educational DVD for primary school teachers.
Aimed at Key Stage 1 pupils, but suitable for all ages in the primary sector, this useful resource explains in simple and engaging language the importance of the Honey Bee. It can be accompanied by a range of pupil worksheets covering many KS1 curriculum areas including maths, science, creative English and vocabulary, art and craft, drama and music, and cooking with honey. Work sheets available in Welsh and English.
The project has been funded by the Welsh Menter a Busnes company and the Co-operative project Plan Bee.
It is currently being distributed free to 135 schools across four counties in North Wales which took part in the Plan Bee Project in Denbighshire, Conwy, Gwynned and Flintshire. Simply contact us here at The British Bee Company and we will be pleased to send a copy.
For orders and enquiries please contact us via email at: email@example.com
This would be an excellent project for eco week.
