Year 2

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 Wildlife Garden to identify minibeasts in their natural habitat. We’ll think about what makes a living thing and identify the difference between living, dead and never been alive. Heading out into the local area, we’ll explore trees and bushes to see what lives there and create a minibeast habitat of our own. We’ll draw sketches of minibeasts, make models from a variety of materials and use microscopes to observe minibeasts up close.

 

We will create a PowerPoint presentation, use scientific vocabulary to explain what we have learnt and display our artwork. We will design and make our own minibeasts and think about their features.

 

Help your child prepare for their project

Minibeasts are fascinating. Why not have a minibeast hunt around your local area? Look out for different minibeasts, take close-up photos and use an app or spotting book to identify any unknown creatures. Alternatively, visit a local museum to see if they have any insect specimens on display. Huge moths, colourful butterflies and armoured beetles are all amazing to see. You could also invent minibeasts of your own. Draw, paint or make models of new minibeasts, then give them a name and describe their special features.
