Creative Writing Task - As our topic is '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. 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!
Create a poster or minibook (see the youtube link for how to make one)
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.
