A visit from The Bug Lady!

The Bug Lady visits Westholme Junior Schools


Children in Year 5 at the Girls’ and Boys’ Junior Schools have been getting to grips with some creepy crawlies! Susan the Bug Lady came in to talk to the pupils about all different kinds of insects and bugs. She brought with her ‘The Bug Box’ which contained a hissing cockroach, a praying mantis and giant stick insects, to name but a few.

Many of the children were extremely brave and when asked who wanted to hold the bugs, Shirley wasn’t short of volunteers! The pupils learnt all about where the bugs’ natural habitats were, how you could tell the difference between a male and female cockroach (it’s all about the horns!) and other interesting facts about each of the creatures inside the box.

What an interesting, (if not slightly creepy) visit.
