Our Biodiversity Collaboration with The Lexicon this May Half Term

What a fun and exciting May Half Term we had! We are thrilled that our biodiversity collaboration with The Lexicon in Bracknell was a big success. Thank you to everyone who attended.

Across the week we explored five key themes centred around biodiversity. These were Birds, Bugs, Butterflies, Blooms and Bees.

We ran classes throughout the week based on these themes. They were hugely popular with over 400 local children attending. The children enjoyed getting stuck in with various arts and crafts, making bird feeders and even trying their hand at some drilling.

As well as in-person classes, we created a fun and educational interactive trail. This weaved around the shopping centre with questions to answer at different spots. Families could scan the QR code at each location and see videos of the Little Muddy Boots team and experts providing the answers. The children loved following the trail and had fun guessing the answers at each point.

Our biodiversity themed half term also included working directly with local schools too. We put together five videos to educate local school children on how they can do their bit to support biodiversity. These were then sent to schools in the area to help spread the word on the importance of helping wildlife to thrive.

Not content with doing all of that, we were delighted to be involved in a competition for a local school to win a garden makeover. This was done through the funds raised from our Little Muddy Boots classes and other supporters. Congratulations to the local winning school!

It was a wonderfully joyful and busy week but no time to rest just yet as we dive into the upcoming Summer Term – will you be joining us?
