Pupils at Pendle Primary School have been very buzzzzzzy!

During another successful National Science Week at the Clitheroe school, children in Key Stage Two were encouraged to take part in a “Bee Competition”, where they were asked to produce leaflets and models to illustrate their knowledge of bees and how they are struggling and the reasons why.

Phil Dykes, East Lancashire Reserves Officer from Lancashire Wildlife Trust, chose 10 winners and organised a wonderful prize – a Saturday morning of work with an acknowledged bee expert, when the children will make models, bee homes and go out to the nature reserves to learn how to identify different types of bees.
