Poem of the Week 





 ‘Why do ladybirds have spots?’ 

This half term, we’ll visit a local park to carry out a minibeast safari! Magnifying glasses clutched firmly in hands, we’ll look under logs, leaves and stones for creatures that wriggle, crawl or fly.

We’ll find out about minibeast habitats, features and colours, and compare them. Observing snails in a tank, we’ll think about how they move. Can we move like that too? We’ll also move like ants, working together to collect and carry objects to move and rebuild a structure, piece by piece.

To get to know these creepy crawlies better, we’ll make  a butterfly garden.

Can we predict what will be these minibeasts’ favourite foods? In our literacy sessions, we’ll use sequential vocabulary to retell stories, and write a story from the perspective of a spider.

In our mathematics sessions, we’ll predict and count ladybird spots and compare the lengths of caterpillars made from cubes, counters and beads.

Getting creative, we’ll make leaf confetti, minibeast finger puppets, and learn to waggle dance like a bee.  We’ll also make brightly-coloured pebble beetles and give them scientific names.
