Week 1 - 01.06.20
Our topic over the next few weeks will be minibeasts! You can work your way through the activities below and remember to send us pictures of your fabulous work!
Monday - What do you already know about minibeasts? What is a minibeast? What do they know about where they live? What they eat? Any special characteristics? Create a poster using what you know already and draw pictures of any minibeast you can think of.
Tuesday - Today you will be going on a minibeast hunt. Before you go and explore, watch this video:
You can look around your garden or when you are out on your daily walk. Make a list of everything you spot or you can use the minibeast hunt sheet below.
Wednesday – Watch this video and then have a go at making a minibeast fact file.
Making a fact file
- Get a piece of paper and fold it in to four quarters (ask someone to help you if needed).
- Choose three minibeasts from the video and give each one a name.
- Then write a sentence about each one making sure you use joining words to link ideas together.
- Sally the snail has a soft body and a hard shell because it protects her.
There is also a fact file sheet below if you would prefer to use that.
Thursday – Watch this video again from yesterday and have a go at creating this minibeast game to test your family at home! I wonder how well they know there minibeasts!
How to make your game
Draw six big squares on a piece of paper and then cut out each square.
On one side write the name of a minibeast (you can draw it too). Then on the other side write a sentence about that minibeast. Make sure you use joining words to include more detail. For example: I can move really quickly because I have eight legs.
Once you've done six, test the people around you to see how many they can guess!
Friday - Minibeast craft – draw, paint or make a collage of your favourite minibeast. We would love to see pictures of what you create!
