It was a buzzy day indeed for children at Parklands Primary School.

Children aged five and six donned wings of all colours, shapes and sizes for a fun bug parade at the school, in Durnford Close.

The pupils transformed themselves into a wonderful variety of insects including bees and dazzling butterflies.

Many of the pupils helped to create their own wonderful costumes, making antennae out of headbands and decorating themselves with face paint to really look the part.

The bug parade was part of a special topic in which they got to grips with the fascinating life of insects.

They spent time researching the many different kinds of creepy crawlies which are some of the world’s most essential creatures.

The day was one of a number of events that pupils enjoyed in the run-up to the end of term, which also included a fun sports day.
