Staff and pupils in Pre-Prep worked with specialist furniture make Ben of Ancoats Industrial Furniture, to create a bug hotel as part of their topic on British wildlife.
The children researched and designed their hotel and then got busy with tools and soil to build it! They worked hard to find some occupants in their garden box.
Class teacher Mrs Jones commented "I love taking lessons outdoors! The children learn practical skills as well as enhancing their fine motor skills by digging and using tools. We had great fun building the bug hotel but we also learnt a great deal about bugs, their importance in the world and what we can do to protect them."
