A House for the insects...
The 3B students at Collège Calmette et Guérin have designed and built insect hotels with their teachers Mrs Gastessous and Mr Bessa as part of their discovery of the professional world.
They have thought about the project, designed the "house", prepared the material, the tools, cut the wood, collected pine cones, leaves and boughs...etc. They also have collected orders and money as if they were a real little "firm".
Fanny, who is a student of this class, brought one of the insect hotels to Heathfield school and offered it to Mr Brierly during the visit to England.
The 3B students are very proud to have contributed to the project!
Our bugs had no home
For them, nowhere was snug
So, we rolled up our sleeves
Found an old piece of rug,
Collected boards, nails and leaves,
Picked up branches and boughs
And built a nice little house,
With a first and a second wooden floor.
“Respect the insects”, we wrote on the door.
Have you heard?
Can you see?
There’s a hotel on the tree!
Have a go!
This is a nice place to grow!
Let’s sleep and eat in the sky!
We are so proud
We now have a crowd
Of many insects that dwell
In our beautiful hotel!
