PRIMARY schoolchildren in Winsford are buzzing to raise awareness about the importance of bees to our ecosystem.

Pupils and staff at Darnhall Primary School enjoyed learning about our insect friends on World Bee Day (May 20).

As well as raising awareness, the aim of the day was also to remind people to do more to help and protect bees.

The children also learned how bees and their role as pollinators are vital to our food supply and came up with some top tips to help save and look after them, designing and making their own posters.

Alongside the work completed in school, the children were also invited to enter a ‘World Bee Day’ competition.

Headteacher Sarah Tomlinson was inundated with entries and was thrilled to see how passionate the children were about raising awareness of the importance of bees and our planet.
