Pupils at a Chorley school donned their wellies to learn all about bugs.

Teachers at St Gregory’s Primary School took their lessons outside, despite the mixed weather, in a week dedicated to the great outdoors.

Activities included den building, writing poetry, camping, playing cricket, going for walks, and searching for mini-beasts and other wildlife.

Learning outside the classroom is a focus for the whole school this year, and the newly built living willow den, large playing fields and wildlife area have provided the perfect setting.

Headteacher Ros Wroblewski said: “The success of the week was summed up by a group of smiling year six pupils.

“They told me this has been the most memorable experience of their primary school days. It doesn’t get better than that.”
