Local author visits badger class

The Children in Badger Class were delighted to welcome Andrew Bickerton into school to read his latest book 'Bumble' with him. 

The book's central character is Bumble, a bee who is on a quest to find some pollen for her hive.  Along with her pollinator friends she ventures further and further afield, having to face many hazards along the way!  Eventually, with the help of her friends, Bumble's campaign to create a more wild-life friendly world becomes the reality.

The children really engaged with the story and were incredibly compassionate when discussing what we can do to help bees through the winter and make our gardens ready for them in the spring.

After reading the story, Mr Bickerton answered questions from the children and we then gave him a tour of our wildlife garden.  The following afternoon we spent some time creating a display about what we can do to protect our pollinators.
