Primary schools receive our Pollinator Learning Packs

Congratulations to the 12 primary schools who have been awarded one of our Pollinator Learning Packs.

Put together by our West Midlands team, these packs include a selection of field guides, wildflower seeds and nest boxes for bees.

A Pollinator Learning Pack with guides, seeds and nest boxes.The goal was to raise awareness of pollinators, improve school grounds, and support learning.

Tracy Hopkins, a teacher from Holy Trinity Primary School, told us why she applied for one of the packs,  'although we are a school surrounded by industry, we strive hard to promote the children's understanding of the natural world.'

Alison Blaney, a teacher from Silverdale Community Primary, was excited at how the packs would help develop their school orchard and said it would 'provide support for the children's learning outside the classroom.'

Thank you to everyone who applied. If you couldn’t get your hands on a pack, why not make one of our bee hotels for your garden or school grounds instead? They are simple to make and provide an excellent nesting space for many pollinators.
