Year 6 pupils Caitlin, Jess and Gracie took part in the Humberside Police Lifestyle Challenge with some year 7 ex-Wilberfoss girls; Meghan and Emily.
The girls got together to create a bee garden at the local Sports and Social Club. It can also be used as a sitting area as the garden has a bench in it. They worked really hard and it was a great success.
The reason the girls decided to make a bee garden was because they heard that bees were dying out. So they decided to take drastic action to the problem. Within just twenty minutes of planting the flowers, the first bee landed. YAY!
The girls got a letter saying that they had got into the finals of the Lifestyle Challenge project. They were so excited and couldn’t wait to find out what they had won. They went on Tuesday 9th November to the Hull City Hall. They were very excited.
The girls won a day trip to Alton Towers theme park and are off on the 22nd of May thay are so happy and grateful for there prize as they put A LOT of hard work into it! :)
