Put on your coat and wellies and let’s head outside on a minibeast hunt.
This term, we are heading to Rye Meads to identify minibeasts in their natural habitat. In geography we will sketch maps of our minibeast hunting area and heading out into the local area, we’ll explore trees, bushes and undergrowth and then create a minibeast habitat of our own. Our computing skills will help us search for information and create pictures about the animals we see. In science we will find out about animal lifecycles, habitats and foodchains. In English we will study the story That Rabbit belongs to Emily Brown and write minibeast calligram poems. In music, we will be listening to a variety of reggae songs and identifying the pulse, rhyme and tempo. Our key artist this half term is William Morris, we will be using repeating patterns to re-create wall paper and make a clay tile.
