This term year 4 took part in the Kingfisher Awards, with the focus this year, on ‘Pollinators and their role in the Orchard’. They carried out a wide range of work for the project. They baked foods with pollinated ingredients, to sell at the School Fete. This not only helped to raise £230 for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust but also helped raise awareness of the importance of bees. The children also created a fantastic UV flowers light box which showed how bees see flowers. They wrote letters to the BBC to spread the word about the decline of pollinators and how people can help. After completing their projects in class, they then took the work to Newton St Cyres to compete against other schools! The children were fantastic and achieved 2nd place. The judges were particularly impressed with how the children discussed the work. If you would like to find out more about how you can help save the bees, come and speak to year 4 children!
