Bug Hotels

Year 1 have worked hard over the past two weeks to plan and build bug hotels. The children were inspired to re-use materials and collect natural materials from the forest because our project question is ‘How can we look after the environment and one another?’ Plant mechanics from Pickerings Hire built the structures for our bug hotels using left over materials from their yard.

First, the children made a plan to make the hotels, identifying the materials they needed to use, the purpose and who their product was for.

After, the children collected suitable materials from the forest.

The children worked well in groups to make the bug hotels. They presented their product to Mrs Coffey, who gave us some useful advice about where we could put the hotels around the school.
