Home / Uncategorised / Thrive Celebrates World Bee Day
Friday 20th May, as declared by the United Nations, is World Bee Day… https://www.worldbeeday.org/en/
The importance of maintaining a healthy worldwide bee population in terms of pollination and what that means for the global eco-system is dear to the Thrive Childcare and Education conservation ethos and something we would wish to highlight.
Throughout the day, many of our sites will be engaging the children in activities which will serve to raise awareness for this important day in ways that are fun and memorable.
Bees have an important part to play in maintaining our planet. They are essential to both pollinating the food we need to survive and the trees and flowers that provide habitats for wildlife.
Our nursery, Holyrood Salford Royal, has been in preparing for this by asking the children to paint pictures of bees…
Jaxon, aged 4 and 5 months was painted this bee for us…
Dylan, aged 4 and 4 months painted this bee for us…
April, aged 4 and 1 month painted this bee for us…
The children at Holyrood Salford Royal have also been planting wildflowers for the bees and they are just starting to poke through now. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago and we shall update you as soon as the flowers are fully grown. The children love to see their work growing plants and flowers. It can be incredibly rewarding for them over time especially when they know that they are actively taking part in nurturing and sustaining the environment.
