For our final half term of the year, Reception have been mad about minibeasts!

We of course had to decorate our topic wall, and so the children all chose their favourite minibeasts and put Bob Ross to shame with these excellent paintings. We have caterpillars galore, as well as spiders, ladybirds, bees and more.

After completing their excellent artistic endeavours, the children were tasked with writing a bit about their minibeasts after having learnt about the lives of the minibeasts and their habitats.

Take a look at some of their work:









And of course, we couldn’t truly be minibeast explorers without having our very own Reception minibeasts;

*Attenborough voice* And here we have the Lepidoptera, or Caterpillar, as it has become commonly known. Currently, they are gorging themselves on nutrients before settling into their chrysalis as the inevitable metamorphosis takes shape. The Reception children eagerly await their polymerisation, until then, we wait.

The Reception learners have loved learning about their minibeasts, and it is clear there are some young Entomologists in our midst.
