The pre-schoolers have been working alongside nursery chef, Sue Thackham to make insects from fondant, motivated by the topic of biodiversity and the creatures they have seen in the garden and bug hotel.

The Day Nursery, on Lewsey Road, have taken inspiration for their designs from their ‘Eco-Schools’ curriculum, which is operated by ‘Keep Britain Tidy’, the aim is to promote behaviour and initiatives that will have a positive impact on the planet.

This includes learning about biodiversity, litter and transport.

"We are really excited to explore more ways in which we can learn about these important topics going forward.”
