Meet our class pets...
THE STICK INSECTS !!!!!!!
We were all given the opportunity to handle and observe the stick insects. From our observations we worked as a group to note our findings then wrote a list of questions for what we wanted to find out. We have continued to find out more and more about our class pets from our research and observations.
DID YOU KNOW???????
We all took part in a bug hunt around the school grounds, collecting specimens by tree beating, log turning and net sweeping.
Our Bug Hotel
To encourage more minibeasts into the school garden we have made a 'Minibeast Hotel'. This is a cosy retreat and provides shelter from the elements.
We had to ensure that we selected the correct position to build the hotel with the right resources to create a structurally sound and safe hideaway..
