Bug ‘hotels’ and more for Littleham pupils
Pupils at an Exmouth primary school have been learning about bugs as part of an electricity company’s drive to promote biodiversity.
Littleham Primary School pupils have been doing their bit for bugs in a bid to learn more about biodiversity.
The school was one of 36 from across Devon to team up with EDF Energy online school’s programme, The Pod, as part of March’s Bug Month.
The youngsters gathered facts on insects, found out about their habitats and built bug ‘hotels’.
Robyn Broughton, EDF Energy’s schools’ programme manager, said the children wrote bug-related poems and designed and built shelters out of natural and recycled materials.
