Welcome to Class One and Class Two!
Our Curriculum Project for Summer 2022 is Wriggle and Crawl.
Wriggle and Crawl
Put on your coat and wellies and let’s head outside on a minibeast hunt. This term, we’ll head to the allotment or woodland to identify minibeasts in their natural habitat. We’ll write a guide for other children to use on a minibeast hunt, draw sketch maps of our minibeast hunting area and create minibeast 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 ICT skills will help us create a minibeast program and we’ll observe a beehive through live webcam footage.

Children are fascinated by minibeasts, whether they’re watching wriggly worms or spotting bright red ladybirds. Try these minibeast activities and crafts with your kids – they’re a wonderful way to spend time together and an opportunity to help youngsters learn about woodland wildlife.
Create a hotel full of different natural materials, to provide hidey-holes for creatures galore!
Insect Week encourages people of all ages to learn more about insects. This year Insect Week runs between 20th-26th June.
In this unit of three sessions meet some friendly creatures from the garden and learn various movement sequences which build towards a final extended ‘Minibeasts’ dance.
