I was asked this afternoon if I would teach about bees to a class of ‘Home Educated’ children, which seems like an oxymoron before I start! They will be about a dozen in number with an age range from 2 to 17. Even worse, they are in Poole.
I am not an natural or a qualified teacher and have no idea what the average attention span of such range of children would be. I suppose I could dress up as a junior spaceman to grab attention, hand round honey to keep them sweet, send round bees to make them wary and get them dancing for entertainment.
It needs more thought before I say ‘Yes’, despite the offered bribe of tea and cake.
