To conclude Pre-School’s ‘Minibeasts’ topic, the children spent time outside this week, creating bug hotels!
With our increasingly urbanised environment and the trend for ‘manicured’ gardens often consisting of large swathes of mowed lawn, there can be a lack of suitable habitats for our native insects to live. Making the conscious decision to include a little patch of wilderness in your garden can be a huge boost to insect populations.
As a way of introducing suitable places for insects to live, the children have been constructing ‘Bug Hotels’ using recycled materials from home, and sticks, pine cones and bark from the school grounds.
Their first guest was ‘Woody’ the woodlouse who left a 5-star review!
