Talking about the many different minibeasts that we may find in our garden or in the park, we found out that insects have 6 legs and minibeasts have no backbone!

Imagine the excitement as ‘live’ class caterpillars arrived on Monday. Using magnifying glasses, we carefully looked very closely at how they moved and climbed to the top of their enclosure, almost hanging upside down! They are still eating their food and getting “bigger”, “fatter” and “longer” by the day. We are hoping that they build their cocoons over the weekend and this is one step closer to them changing into butterflies.

There was a buzz of excitement on Thursday morning as we prepared to leave our classroom for the sports field to participate in the annual sports day. The children joined in with each of the three races with gusto and a beaming smile, which was sure evidence that great fun was had by all!


Our topic next week is Bees!
