Summer Term 1 - Wriggle and Crawl

What makes a minibeast choose its 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 computing skills will help us create a minibeast animation and we'll observe a beehive through live webcam footage.
