Learning about Minibeasts – Wk 2 in Wrens

Hi everyone, the weather certainly has taken a turn. Hopefully the sun will return soon. I hope everyone is ok, and thank you again for the fabulous photos being sent in.

It is also great to see so many children are still keeping up with their reading on Active Learn. A big well done for that.

I hope you have had time to watch our ‘Minibeast” video, and maybe even sang along to it.

Well, here are a few other things we have been doing at school you might want to have a go at.

Obviously sticking with the “Minibeast” them, as we are mad about them!

Maths Ideas

We have been working on doubling numbers 1 to 10.

Using our doubles knowledge to answer these number sentences.

Craft Ideas

Creating our own spiders webs.

Creating minibeasts using natural materials from our woodland area.

Drawing ourselves as an entomologist.


Knowledge and Understanding of the World

We’ve learnt about the life cycle of a butterfly.

Completing facts about minibeasts using templates like this one for bees,

and writing sentences about which minibeast we would be and why. We used the writing paper below, but please put lines across it to help your child keep their writing neat, and in a line.

We also found this activity pack really good. Ideal for those rainy days.


Keep up the great work everyone!

Love Mrs Marriott & Mrs Briggs x
