Our topic this half term was The Scented Garden. This week we would like you to research a minibeast of your choice- it could be a caterpillar, butterfly or a ladybird. Create a poster or information leaflet (see video below to learn how to make a mini book) to share what you already know or have learnt about your minibeast. You can include your own drawings or use pictures you find when you research. You may even want to go on your own minibeast hunt to help you research!
Remember to use the resources below to help you! I have included a minibeast reading comprehension as an example on how to layout your information poster- feel free to have a go answering the questions!
You can send your work back to the teachers by logging into Google Classrooms with your child's HWB login.
As usual please continue to read at home with your child. BugClub reading books are available online and teachers can monitor usage and update when new books need issuing.
Well done to those of you continuing to use BugClub to access your Abacus maths tasks.
This week's Numeracy tasks all linked to halves and quarters so I'd love to see some practical learning experiences.
Maybe you could share out some biscuits, toast or pieces of fruit.
