Welcome to Class One and Class Two!
Our Curriculum Project for Spring 2 2020
Wriggle and Crawl
Put on your coat and wellies and let’s head outside on a minibeast hunt. This term, we’ll head to a woodland to identify minibeasts in their natural habitat. We’ll write explanation texts about the life cycle of a mini beast, 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. Our ICT skills will help us create a minibeast animation using stop motion and we will have a special visitor come in and talk to us about an insect that are very important to the natural world.
