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.

We have begun our new topic of Chocolate with gusto in Year 3. We are learning the history of chocolate and about its origins.
The children are enjoying discovering characters in our story, Charlie and the Chocolate factory, and imagining their own inventions to be considered by Willy Wonka!
