Good morning Holly and Hazel


I hope you had a lovely day being creative and making your favourite insect with recycling materials. Please bring them into school when you return as part of your show and tell. Miss Taylor has sent a list of when your show and tell date is, please see class messages on Dojo. 


Today we will continue our topic of minibeast, we will look at worms and their life cycle, have a go, and make your own wormery. For our creative activity, I would like you to listen to the song  'There is a worm at the bottom of the garden'. Afterwards, I would like you to look at the life cycle of a worm and then make your own Wormery and see how the worms tunnel through the soil. 

In maths, I would like you to try the minibeast counting sheet and afterwards have a go at the measuring activity sheet, ordering the worms from longest to shortest. 

There is a minibeast pencil control sheet to practise your fine motor skills getting ready for early writing. 

In literacy can you watch the story of 'Mad about Minibeast' learning about all the different insects.   I have also added some optional worm colouring sheets for you to try. Lastly, can you take part in the Cosmic Yoga session of Arnold The Ant linking to our minibeast topic. 


Each day we will continue to follow the school timetable including activities in Maths, English, Creative, and Physical for you to complete. Plus some optional fun additional activities on the daily pages Optional Activities Star.
