Great British Bugs 26.06.12

June 25 to July 1 is National Insect Week and as is now customary, the Biology Department has arranged a series of events involving not only boys from LGS, LHS and Fairfield, but also children from local primary schools.  A packed schedule includes:  talks by our own experts and visiting speakers; practical exercises such as pootering in the Spinney, as shown in the photograph; a chance to meet and handle a variety of invertebrates; the Insect Olympics and, for the very “brave”, the opportunity to eat an invertebrate or two.
