Children at Bishop David Sheppard Primary School, Southport recently took part in their very own Dragons’ Den as part of a climate week challenge.
Children in Years 1 to 6 were challenged to create something out of recycled materials that would encourage wildlife into the school grounds. The classes competed to ‘pitch’ their idea to the dragons, Lesley Kirkbride, Dot Mawdsley, from Tesco and Ms Pyke.
Year 1 pupils designed bird feeders; Year 2 designed birdhouses; Year 3 designed butterfly feeders; Years 4 and 5 designed insect homes and Year 6 pitched their ideas about transforming the pond area in their eco garden.
The winners were Year 1 who made an extremely passionate pitch about how their bird feeder could attract wildlife and be made in an eco-friendly way!
Children were presented with a £10 gift certificate in the school awards assembly.
Lesley Kirkbride, Tesco community champion said: “Well done to everyone for taking part and presenting such fantastic ideas and designs. I am sure we have some future designers in our midst!”
