Marvellous minibeasts

Friday 29 April 2022

This week, the children had fun writing their own versions of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. They came up with some fantastic ideas.

BI – The Very Hungry Bee
CW – The Very Hungry Ant
CW – The Very Hungry Worm
HD – The Very Hungry Spider
BA – The Very Hungry Dragonfly

Next week, we’ll study the artist Alexander Calder and create our own representations of his butterfly work.
On Monday, Mr Atkins brought us a box – it was our caterpillars! The children were so excited.  When they arrived, they were amazed at how tiny they were. Throughout the next few weeks, the children will be observing them on a daily basis and writing in their caterpillar diaries. This week, we’ve been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly.
Ask your child if they can remember the four stages of the life cycle. 
The minibeast learning continued in the areas…

We went looking for minibeasts in our outdoor area. We talked about what they look like and their habitats.
We painted symmetrical butterflies.

We used natural objects to create minibeasts.
