The secret is out!

This morning three of our children spoke to Amanda White as part of the Sally Fairfax breakfast show to promote our World Bee Day project as part of our careers curriculum (photos to follow).

Each class has been issued with £10 to improve the school site. Class 4 decided that they wanted to have a lasting impact that would come back every year even after the children eventually leave Brandesburton Primary School. The children were also aware that World Bee Day is on 20th May and that Bees are struggling yet they are really important for the environment for pollenating. Therefore, we decided that we wanted to plant lots of bulbs and bee friendly plants in the school grounds to attract more bees and to help them.

We know that £10 doesn’t go very far, so we were hoping that the local community could help us and bees through match funding.

How it works:

  • We are asking local businesses to either donate £10 or purchase the equivalent cost of bulbs or plants.
  • If possible we would like to plant half of the donated bulbs or plants on our site and then for you to plant the other half at your site, however we are willing to plant all bulbs and plants at our site it you don’t have anywhere.
  • With the aim of creating a beacon for Bees within the Humberside Radio area to help the environment.
