A bug, a creepy-crawly, a beast! He’ll tickle your skin then go in for the sting! Arachnids, insects, molluscs and myriapods, hiding in nooks and beneath darkened rocks. Come search for these minibeasts, and let’s sort them out! How many legs? How many wings? Who does it eat and who eats it? Can you classify it? Can you draw it or make it? Build a bug hotel or a wonderful wormery – then watch them wriggle and burrow, mixing earth as they go! Discover where in the world you’ll find the deadliest beasts. Perhaps the Vespa mandarinia japonica is the one that you fear? Create your own beastly super-hero - Spiderman and Ant Man will be old news! ‘There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – perhaps she’ll die?’
Using our new online platform Seesaw, we will be directing you to which tasks to do when from the Topic Overview. You can respond to posts and announcements to share your thoughts, ask your questions and upload your work to share with Mr Trenowden, Mrs Keen and the rest of the class. We will aim to update the class web page with examples of our learning this term from the things you send in.
A general reminder, as we would in school, to keep yourself safe online. Please remember to think carefully about the search terms used when carrying out research and question the reliability of sites by looking at their domain name before opening. Children must always ask permission and let an adult know what you are searching for; allow them to help you find what you are looking for. In the curriculum overview we have given you some links to suitable examples of where to begin.
