 DPS Bug Hotel... Now Open!

This month P2 had a visit from Christine, the Countryside Officer at Castlereagh Borough Council. 

After the success of the hedgehog boxes in P1, we were invited to take part in another biodiversity project – a bug hotel. Christine and  Ian came to talk to a group of P2s about the bugs that might like to live in the bug hotel. Along with the bug hotel, they even brought some bugs for the P2s to look at. After the talk, some of the P2s went out to the P2 playground to find the best place for the bug hotel. The best place was in a sunny spot in the woodland area. Once the bug hotel was secured, the children enjoyed filling the remaining spaces with leaves, twigs and small branches. When we returned after break the children were delighted to discover the first bugs had already moved in!
