Wrens are ‘Mad About Minibeasts’

Good morning everyone,

I do hope you are all well, and are still enjoying using Active Learn and the School Jam maths app. Don’t forget to use the National Oak too.

It’s great to receive photos of you all busy learning at home. It really does make us smile, so keep up the great work everyone, and keep those photos coming!

In school we are planning our learning around the book ‘Mad About Minibeasts’.

Here are a few of things which we have been doing. I thought you also might like to have a go at these at home.

We are learning to sing this song…..

We are then going to try and make a little dance up to go with it. Watch this space!

We have also been making these minibeasts too.

We used paper plates, card and felt pens for the caterpillar.

We used card and felt pens for the snails.

We are also going to be painting our own ladybird pebbles tomorrow (Friday).

We played a game called ‘What am I? too. Why not try and play along at home? Here is the link for that.


We then chose a minibeast and tried writing some facts about it. Then we played our own game of guess the minibeast!

You could go on a minibeast hunt too.


I have been using this website to get materials to support our learning about ‘Minibeasts’


We will keep sharing some of the things we have been doing at school on here. Take care everyone, and I will be in touch again soon x
