Dear friends,

here is the movie in English our students watched to consolidate their knowledge they gained thanks to our projects. The children are much more aware of the importance of bees in our life :)

Students from Primary School in Zabór has joined Bee Academy. It's a series of extra classes for all the pupils who are interested in taking care of environment.

The participants learn about the life of bees and their habits. For the first meeting everyone brought something connected with bees: books, posters, leaflets. Students learnt some important facts about our little, striped friends by doing exercises on interactive whiteboard. The teachers engaged in the project who are running the classes - Mrs Beata and Mrs Marzena - showed them examples of things that can be made of beeswax.

All the participants loved Bee Academy :)

Here are some photos from the meeting - students made this poster during eTwinning classes that are organised especially for our project.

10 rules to protect the bees

Here are 10 rules my class and I created and presented on our school Earth Day in spring. We called our part of presentation "Take care of the bees to fulfill our tables".

 

 

LET’S SAVE THE BEES – 10 SIMPLE RULES

written by Mrs Marzena Ciok and 2nd class students

 

 

1.      1. Create a habitat that is bee-friendly. If you have a garden, plant a lot of blooming flowers and trees. If you don’t have a garden, keep the plants in the pots near the window or on the balcony.

2.      2. Remember that bees like simple, “old-fashioned” plants.

3.      3. When you walk in the woods or through the fields, don’t destroy the plants.

4.      4. Create simple “nests” for the bees. Use only natural things, like wood and straw.

5.      5. Read more about harmful pesticides. Tell your parents and other adults you know to read about them – they can help you to protect the bees!

6.      6. Use the Internet! Create new website with information about protecting the bees. You can do it with your friends or family and have fun together!

7.      7. Talk to your teacher to organise a special lesson about the life of the bees and things that are harmful for them.

8.      8. Ask an adult (parent, teacher etc.) to help you to write an article about protecting the bees you can send to the local newspaper.

9.      9. When you want to buy some honey, remember about your local beekeepers – honey from their hives doesn’t contain so much sugar and is much tastier than the one from the shop!
10. And the most important thing: when you see a bee in your room, don’t hit it with a thick book! Just open the window and let the bee stay alive!

The first day of spring

Today students from Zabór celebrated the first day of spring.

 

In Poland, celebrating the end of winter and the beginning of spring is a very old tradition. The symbol of winter is a dummy of a woman made of hay, straw and paper, wearing old clothes, paper flowers and ribbons. The dummy is called Marzanna, which meant "the one who is dying".

 

 

In the past, on the first day of spring people were taking Marzanna out of their town or village, were setting her on fire and drowning in a river. Nowadays, people usually burn the dummy in a huge bonfire.

 

 

Our students cultivate the tradition of burning Marzanna every year. Today, they started celebrating with a parade: they took Marzanna, small instruments like trumpets and bells and took a walk around Zabór to show everyone that winter is over. After that, they came back to school and set the bonfire. Marzanna disappeared in flames and then everybody could have a lunch: roast sausages, bread and water or juice. At the end of the celebration children played tag and football.

 

Here is a picture of Marzanna:



 

The beginning of spring means more and more bees around us. We're very happy, because we have seen some flowers on the trees and bushes near our school. Bees will be very glad to see the flowers, too. Are the trees and bushes blooming in your countries?
