On Thursday we had a workshop with Dee about Biodiversity, in conjunction with the Heritage in Schools Scheme. Dee spoke with us about pollinators, in particular, the Irish Honey Bee, butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies. We got to inspect a Honey Bee using magnifying lenses, learn about its development from egg to adult bee, smell a beeswax candle and look at the suit a beekeeper uses. We also got to see the pupa of a dragonfly and look at a variety of butterflies. It was a very interesting talk and we learnt some new information.
