In Learning Diversity Science, our Year 9 and 10 students have been working hard to develop their portfolios this term. We have been studying honey bees and their life cycle. Our students have made wonderful progress so far, and are excited to continue to explore the fascinating world of Science.

This year in Science we have learning about bees. There are different types of bees like working bees and queen bees. We have been learning how bees make honey and how bees grow into adults.

In Science we really enjoyed learning about honey bees. We are really looking forward to making bee hotels and learning about flowers.
Angela Dragicevic (OLS7) and Kate Rijavec (OLS5)
In Science we have been learning about bees. We learnt about the body, their diet, habitat and lots more. The fun part of learning about the bees was creating a bee from popsticks.
Raphael Chavez (SC6) and Ryan Nik Mahmud Hashrom (SC2)
In Science we have learnt that bees collect pollen from the flowers, then they take the pollen back to the hive and it turns into honey. We have also learnt that there are different types of bee – like worker bees, the queen bee, drone bees. They all have a different job, and they are all siblings. We have also learnt that when baby bees are born, nurse bees look after the baby bees until they grow. We made bees with pop sticks – that was fun! We can’t wait to do more Science next term.
