As part of Biodiversity Week each class completed a project on a native tree, plant, flower, animal, bird or insect. The projects which are on display in the corridors look fantastic and are full of interesting facts.
Well done to the girls in Mrs.White’s 4th class who composed the winning Greencode:
Presentation is our name,
Biodiversity is our aim.
Caring for the birds and trees,
And making homes for the bugs and bees.

Today Clare from OWLS helped us fill our bug hotel with materials to attract more insects into our school garden. She showed us how to safely use a saw and drill. It was great to have a hands-on session. We worked as a team and we are so proud of our new bug hotel. Four insects have moved in already – a caterpillar, a slug, a beetle and a snail.

Today Dale Treadwell who has appeared on many children’s TV shows spent the day in our school. His sessions were fun, energetic and full of cool facts about biodiversity. He read his two books to the classes – ‘Harry the Hedgehog’ and ‘Robby the Christmas Robin’. At lunchtime he kindly helped the Green Schools committee plant a bee and butterfly garden in one of our raised beds. They planted a buddleia, a sunflower, lavender, lupins and wildflower seeds. We look forward to seeing it in bloom later in the year.
