We have had a very busy half term finding out all about bugs and insects.
We searched for bugs under plants and rocks, to go in our Bug Hotel. We recorded how many different types we found.
It was great fun using watering cans to help Incey Wincey go down the spout. We also got a bit wet too! After finding out how many legs a spider has, we made our own using clay, counting the legs carefully to make sure it had the correct amount.
Using pictures and props we placed them in order to retell the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, then created our own butterfly using paints. We observed that the patterns were the same on each wing when folded on the line of symmetry. Ladybird spots were also stuck into place, counting they had the same amount on each wing.
We learnt how bees are very important for our plants, where they live and what they collect and produce. Of course we tried some honey, spreading it onto some bread.
Our next topic will be People Who Help Us, beginning in September.
I hope you all have a really lovely summer break and look forward to seeing you all, as well as some new faces, in the Autumn Term.
