‘It’s a Bug Life for children at the Grove!”
The whole school has helped Bug storey rangers build a giant bug hotel right here in our school grounds!
Each class contributed to the building of a different storey in the ‘hotel’ with removable drawers which will attract different creepy crawlies, mammals and amphibians! Once established, the Bug Storey experience will enable classes to get hands on with nature and help children to develop a lifelong engagement with the natural world.
The project has been made possible by a generous grant of £3500 from The Big Lottery. The grant will also fund a workshop led by ecologists to ensure that the children can identify key species and provide a holistic educational experience for pupils.
Alice Porter from BBC Hereford and Worcester popped in to see what had been happening and interview some children!
