Primary 2/3 have had a great time learning all about Minibeasts this term. We have learned so much and had lots of fun. Above is a photo of one of our ‘Painted Lady’ butterflies. We observed them in our classroom growing from tiny caterpillars into beautiful butterflies. The butterfly in the photo above liked Beth and sat on her arm for a long time. Mrs Mier called her the ‘butterfly whisperer’.
One day Mrs Simpson brought in some locusts for us to have a look at. We learned all about locusts. They were fascinating!
We were also lucky enough to get a close up look at some moths. Caitlin and her mum found an interesting moth on the way to school and brought it inside for us to have a look. Mrs Douglas brought a book to help us identify it. It was called a Poplar Hawk Moth. We put it back where we found it after we had all had a look.
Freya also had a moth she had watched develop from a caterpillar at home. She also brought it in for us to have a look. It was called a Drinker Moth.
We’ve learned lots about minibeast, life cycles, habitats, food chains and lots more. We’ve also been very creative in our arts and crafts lesson. Here are a few more photos to have a look at.
