Summer Term 1- Wriggle and Crawl

What makes a minibeast choose it's habitat?

Put on your coat and wellies and let’s head outside on a minibeast hunt.

This term, we’ll head to a wetland or woodland to identify minibeasts in their natural habitat. We’ll write a guide book for other children to use on a minibeast hunt, draw sketch maps of our minibeast hunting area and create minibeast stories and poems. Heading out into the local area, we’ll explore trees and bushes to see what lives there, investigate how far and how fast a snail can travel and create a minibeast habitat of our own. We’ll draw delicate sketches of minibeasts, make models from a variety of materials and use microscopes to observe minibeasts up close. Our ICT skills will help us create a minibeast animation and we’ll observe a beehive through live webcam footage.

Week Beginning 20/4/22

Science- To start our project we engaged in a mini beast hunt on the field and Natureland. First we predicted what creatures we would see and where we might find them. Then we went in search of them using magnifying jars and small spoons to scoop them carefully into the jars.

We returned the creatures to their habitats and returned to the classroom to discuss and record our findings.

Week beginning 25/4/22

Look at our fantastic home learning. We showed our projects to our class and talked about how we made the project and what we learnt about our new projects whilst researching them.
