SCHOOL WILDLIFE CLUB: We’re going on a bug hunt!

After spending so much time making habitats for the insects that live in our school grounds, we were curious to see if our efforts had attracted any interesting creatures.

So one lunchtime, armed with containers and magnifying glasses, we set off on a bug hunt!

We soon found out that our efforts had definitely paid off!

Here is what we found…
