Bug Hunt!

“Last week at Seedlings the children found some bugs in the outdoor area near the sandpit.  This led to a great in depth discussion about insects, where they live and the different kinds of insects there are.  We looked at lots of different picture cards that have pictures of mini beasts so we could see what they looked like and read all about them. We shared some mini beast stories such as the hungry caterpillar and what the ladybird heard.  We then decided to search in our nature garden to see if we could find any real mini beasts, some of the children used a picture sheet to tick off the insects they found and some children were extremely brave and were happy to hold some of the insects and observe them more closely.  We then created our own mini beasts using paint, collage and paper plates!”
