Our mini beast day
On Monday the children enjoyed their mini beast themed day.
The children engaged in a range of activities for the theme and were very excited when one of their friends bought in some snails from their garden for the children to explore and observe. The children watched as the snails moved and discussed the movements and speed.
The children also looked up various different types of mini beasts in books and on the computer and searched for these in the garden. Turning over objects was an exciting way to find slugs, spiders and worms.
The children all chose a mini beast they wanted to build a house for and used a selection of open ended resources to construct their own mini beast house. The children watched to see if the mini beasts inhabited their houses excitedly.
