Bees on the school field!

Yesterday afternoon we had a wonderful visit from a swarm of bees to the school field. This resulted in a local beekeeper visiting the school to kindly remove the bees. Some of the staff were very privileged to watch as Mrs Burgess helped to remove the bees from the bush into a portable beehive. Together they carefully removed the swarm, using a smoker to take away the pheromone smell of the Queen from the bush. It was fascinating to watch as the bees found their way to their new portable hive, using their sense of smell! The event was filmed and will be shared during a school assembly later in the term!
