We also welcomed Kristen and James from ‘Bugs n Slugs’. “A world without insects” is the overarching problem Reception students will try to solve throughout this week. The students were fortunate to engage in a ‘Bugs n Slugs incursion. They learnt what defines an insect, as well as the important jobs these creatures have in our world. One area they will look at is how to encourage pollinating insects to grow and be able to complete their necessary work in our gardens. Thank you Kristen and James.
