LITTLE monsters took over Frances Olive Anderson Primary School as pupils took part in a special ‘Mini Beast’ science challenge.

The children have been taking part in ‘bug hunts’ both at home and in school and have also been doing a variety of other projects about insects including stories, artwork, photographs and models.

A spokesman from the school said: “It’s been brilliant and the kids have loved getting involved in learning all about bugs and animals.”

“One grandad even made a bug house and a bird box which he donated to the school.”

He added: “The children in Class B are also working with Trent Vale Partnership to develop their nature reserve and we can’t wait to kick off ‘The Sunflower Challenge’ next term.
