Year 3’s class mascot is the bee

At the beginning of the year, we discussed how and why bees are disappearing. Caring Year 3 LPs were surprised and saddened and decided they wanted to do something to help the bees. At first we wanted to write a letter to pesticide companies, but this may have presented a conflict of interest. We decided instead to create pictures showing flowers that help bees flourish, and Heike (our art teacher) took over and helped the children create masterpiece bee pictures, using different media. The result is a beautiful 2017 calendar that features 13 of the children’s pieces. We will donate money raised from the sale of the calendars to local beekeepers, some of which we will visit in the spring. Calendars cost 10 euros each.
