Pupils go batty for wildlife at Lighthorne Heath Primary School

Leamington Editorial 20th Mar, 2024   0

YOUNGSTERS have been going batty for wildlife at Lighthorne Heath Primary School.

Bat boxes and bee hotels were donated to the school in Upper Lighthorne by David Wilson Homes to mark World Wildlife Day.

The wildlife houses will be put up in the school grounds.

Teacher Katy Hill said: “We are delighted to receive the bat boxes and bee hotels. They are a welcome addition which will support an ongoing school project to encourage more wildlife and make our grounds ‘bee friendly’.

“We are also working with local wildlife experts to develop a wildflower meadow in our school field and the children have recently helped plant a hedgerow to help provide more habitats for birds and other wildlife.

“The children are currently researching bats and bees as part of a whole school home learning task which will support their understanding of how the bee hotels and bat boxes will be used and the best place for them to be positioned.”
