Bee-utiful creatures

Explore the hidden world of insects!

90 mins/£130 per session

Pupils will discover the importance of insects through storytelling, songs and hands-on activities. They will talk about the differences between insects and venture into the outdoors to find insects in their natural habitat. We will then search for one of the most important insects of all, bees! Pupils will visit our very own bee hives to talk about why caring for bees is important, before creating their own bee hotel to take home.
