Would you BEElieve it?

On Tuesday, whilst KS1 were having their afternoon break the teachers spotted a huge swarm of bees! They quickly got all of the children indoors with the windows closed. Luckily one of our Governor's husband Mr Woodlock knows lots about bees! He quickly came round and was able to safely take them away to a new hive - we hope we get to taste some of their honey!

The pictures below show Mr Woodlock bundling them up in the cloth and taking them home. The next pictures show him shaking them into a new hive and putting some empty frames in for them to build cells and get the queen laying. He also put in some other frames with honey (from another hive) so they had something to eat after their adventure!
