Reception – If you could be a minibeast for a day, which one would you be and why? Ext – Follow year 1’s learning.
Year 1 - If you could be a minibeast for a day, which one would you be and why? Now write about a day in the life of your chosen minibeast.
All children – Thinking about all of the minibeasts you have seen and learned about this week. I want you to create your own made up minibeast, using different parts of real life ones. For example, my minibeast would have the body of a worm so that it could slither into small cracks and holes, it would have lots legs like a millipede so that it could run fast away from danger and 8 eyes like a spider! Can you make or draw your minibeast, what is it called?
