Busy Bees signs of Spring

The Busy Bees met in February to see what Signs of Spring they could find in the churchyard. Bridget Goldsmith had kindly prepared a useful checklist of things to look out for, which included eight different flowers, three kinds of buds and signs of animals.

Despite the drizzle, we realised that rain was essential to Spring growth, and we could still hear the birds singing. The children planted some cherry tomato seeds, collected moss for their replica nests and put mini eggs in to chocolate nests. Eating them was the best bit!
