Year 2 Pebble minibeasts!
Year 2 have enjoyed using their pebbles today to make their very own minibeasts. We now have an amazing selection of ladybirds, bumble bees, big, scary spiders and beautiful butterflies.
Well done Year 2 for being soooo creative!
Today a parcel arrived for Year 1. Thanks to everyone who bought books at the book fair (and Mrs Cooke) we were able to order some lovely new books for our topic. We all voted on which one we would like to read first and shared the story all together.
Palm Class have been on the hunt for technical vocabulary!
We have have been searching for minibeast words to use in our non-chonological report writing.
We identified the correct terminology for the different body parts of our minibeasts.
Some of the new vocabulary was tricky to read and we had to really collaborate together to correctly read and pronounce the words.
Pick 3 new words you learned today and explain them to someone at home!
We spy with our little eyes, something beginning with ‘M’…
Palm Class investigated and explored our school grounds today. We were on a special mission…to locate the creepiest of crawlies!
From beautiful butterflies to slimy snails, buzzing bees to scary spiders…
We searched high and low, looking under and over. Using the science equipment, we carefully caught the minibeasts and looked at them in more detail. How many legs? Did it have wings? What else did you discover?
We took our new friends back to our classroom to make observational drawings of them and to complete a tally chart for the different bugs we had all found.
Afterwards, we made sure we put them all back outside very gently. Some of the snails were in a bit of a hurry because they were trying to escape out of the containers!Which minibeasts did you find today? Where did you find them? What can you tell someone about them?
We’re going on a bug hunt. We’re going to catch some little ones. What a chilly day! We’re not scared!
We found plenty of worms under rocks and logs and in the thick, oozy mud. We found a few beetles and wood lice. We even found a newt.
We used pooters to suck up the smallest bugs. Your children will be able to explain what a pooter is.
This mud is so thick, you’ll lose your wellies! Just look at the state of those socks!
