  1. Hi Sara

    Would you like to come in to speak the the Year 6 class about your beekeeping and why bees are so important for the life cycle of plants? We are studying life cycles at the moment and next week will be looking at what would happen if bees became extinct?
    We’d love to hear all about your bees and Hen Corner.
    Regards, Antoinette
