Science Week


This week we have had a fabulous time, learning all about insects, habitats and pollination. The children have been lucky enough to be involved in making Bug Hotels to be placed in our school grounds. With close supervision, they have used a saw, drill and have been painting the bug boxes, ready for the bugs to move in. In the Summer, we will be able to use these hotels to learn all about habitats and life cycles. The nursery children have been learning about ladybirds during the week and have made their own bug hotels using cardboard boxes and natural materials.

Thank you to all of our Parents and Carers for coming into school and working alongside their children: it means a lot to the children and feedback has shown that you value these sessions very much. Look out for more opportunities to come and work alongside your child in school.

Thank you also to those of you who sent in sticks, bottles, wood etc to furnish our lovely Bug Hotels, and to the British Science Association for giving us a grant towards the cost of the activities.
