World Bee Day Intergenerational Activities
Verwood CE First Nursery celebrated World Bee Day on Thursday 20th May and have been making links in the local community as the residents of Moretons House in Ferndown participated in their own World Bee Day events, bringing together our younger and older generations. To embrace their connection Nursery children created a piece of artwork to share with their friends at Moretons House, who were delighted to receive it.
Children have been “ busy bees” and Nursery was buzzing as children enjoyed understanding the bee’s vital role in our natural world together with learning about becoming a beekeeper with Mrs Palmer. Children enjoyed eating honey sandwiches at snack time, drawing and painting bee and hive pictures, they also made honey gloop and sang and danced to ‘The Honey Song’ and made flowers.
Children received a lovely thank you letter from Moreton House who expressed a huge amount of joy at sharing this day with them. Residents will be sharing their photos of their events with the children and look forward to celebrating with the children again in the future.
