How are important are insects?
We were delighted to see so much interest in the Gallery at the Great Big Green Week Fair display of children’s work as part of Greener Henley’s Environmental Science Challenge 2022!
Three schools – Checkendon CE Primary, Rupert House and St Mary’s – will share the honour of having the plinth for a term each. Each school was also given a bug hotel for their outside areas.
The Challenge was to show how important insects are. In March 2022 we launched our new challenge under the title of ‘How important are insects? and invited pre-schools, primary schools, key stage 3 students and other interested parties to take part. To cater for different students’ preferred learning styles we suggested that their submissions could be creative or scientific, with a wide range of formats being acceptable, such as artwork, stories illustrating the importance of a particular insect, a board game design or factual writing, charts and graphs, surveys of insects found in their school grounds, etc.
