Mini-Beast Madness

Look at all the fabulous learning we have been doing about mini beasts!

First we looked at some model mini-beasts in our Bug Laboratory and made some lists. We wrote a list of what we already knew and we made some lists of questions; of things we would like to find out.

Then we started trying to find some answers. We went to the library and looked in information books. We used laptops and tablets to search the internet. We even went to look for ourselves!


We became so expert on certain insects that we made documentaries on film and we have written information books about them too. Come and see them!

We have also looked after some caterpillars until they became beautiful butterflies and we had to let them go.


We have answered so many of our questions that we have started designing new mini-beasts of our very own on a top trumps game and we have enjoyed playing Beetle Drive too.

Any questions that we have left we are hoping to get answered by the experts on our trip to Bugtopia next week.

Other Stuff

What a wonderful trip to Morrisons we had on Thursday morning!

We tried several Italian foods such as fresh Ciabatta with olive oil and fresh basil leaves, various cold pastas, Italian meats and cheeses including a blue cheese.

We tried Italian olives and Greek olives to compare them to.

The butchery department talked the children through the process of making minced beef, used for bolognaise and demonstrated making fresh burgers too.

Our children were also luckily enough to look at and touch various fresh fish including a squid!  We have since tasted some cooked octopus in school which got very mixed reviews!

In school we learnt about how olive oil is made and we visited the oils aisle to look at the various choices on offer.

Morrisons provided cookies and a drink each in the café to conclude our visit which the children (and adults) really enjoyed.
