The Bug Hotel - 13th June 2014

Groups of children from Ash class spent the morning building a bug hotel for all sorts of little creatures to create their homes in.


  • Using small pallets, plastic tubes in various sizes , sticks, twigs, pine cones, straw, bamboo, moss, grass, bark, bricks and broken tiles the children constructed a 7 level apartment block in the newly opened Wildlife Area at the back of the school field.
  • The children enjoyed collecting and deciding which materials they wanted for their level of the hotel. We had an exciting sighting of a rather large slow worm…which meant some of the more squeamish decided the collecting of moss might be a bad idea!
  • We are looking forward to it being inhabited over the next couple of months so that it can become a useful educational resources for classes learning about mini beasts.
