Adopting an Amur Leopard

Written by Garston. Posted in General

Did you know that there are less than 60 Amur Leopards left in the wild and due to this it makes them one of the worlds most endangered cats?

Honey Pot Garston have teamed up with the WWF and have adopted an Amur Leopard, Worker Bees have named him Sunset.

This is in partnership with Eco-schools. Our children have used the interactive board to look at where Amur Leopards live and how we are supporting them from becoming extinct.

The children will take turns in taking Sunset home to look after him for the weekend.

On Friday Garston are holding a ‘wear your spots day’ to raise money to support the WWF.

Introducing Mindfulness Mentors

Written by Garston. Posted in General

In our worker bees room we have introduced mindfulness mentors- linking in with our time to talk event. We are raising awareness of mental health and the support that we can offer.

Each day 2 children are selected to be mindfulness mentors and they will be given a badge. Workers children are now aware that if they are upset or feeling sad they can talk to their mindfulness mentor and ask for a cuddle. This has been a big success in our worker bees room.

Written by Aigburth. Posted in General

As part of our Eco-schools award, Honey Pot Aigburth have adopted a rhino.

Our rhino’s name is Lankeu!

Today we introduced our rhino mascot to the children in pre-school.

We talked about how Lankeu is a black rhino and lives in Nairobi national park. We also talked about how Lankeu’s type of rhino are becoming extinct so that is why we chose to adopt him in order to help look after him.

We also learnt about his habitat and what he likes to eat.

The children will all be getting a turn to take our Lankeu rhino mascot home to look after.
