Enthusiastic beekeeper Nick Brading gave a lively and buzzy talk about bees to the Pre-Prep gardeners during enrichment last week. Mr Brading will be a familiar face to staff and pupils further up the school: his twin boys James and John were Head Boys at Cundall in 2011. The Pre-Prep children learnt all about the beehive, where the Queen bee lays her eggs and how the worker bees store their honey. Mr Brading brought along different types of honey for the children to taste – wildflower honey, heather honey and rapeseed honey. The pollen was gathered by the bees from different plants and flowers. The wildflower honey was their favourite! The children were so fascinated that his talk carried on into
After School Club.
