Bug club is a lunch club that was started by three boys from Year 4. They were inspired by their class book Charlotte's Web and their science where they were sorting invertebrates.
It is a great opportunity for them to share their interest with others. The club is overseen by an adult during Monday lunch time and they have access to pooters etc. to search through the leaf litter and long grass at the boundary of the play ground.
They have even made posters in their own time to encourage others to join. They now have a group of about 12 regulars.
One of the boys was telling Andrew from Pelagic Aquatics in Matfield all about Bug Club and Andrew offered to bring a selection of different creatures in for free to give them an extra special experience.
