Our new topic this half term is  ‘Minibeasts!’

A ‘minibeast’ is any animal that is smaller than a mouse. Can you tell us about any minibeasts you have seen? Can you tell us about any minibeasts you already know about? Can you tell us your favourite minibeast and why?

We can’t wait to hear!

    Miriam says: “I know a lot about dragonflies. They have four wings and they can fly. I also know that ants eat all types of food, like apples and corn! I like ants because they make little holes in dirt. At school there are ants all over the dirt. They make holes in the dirt and go back into their homes. Ants live in underground homes. Ants are my favorite minibeast.”

    Zeyn says ‘I like bees. They make honey. I like honey on my toast and on my bagel. Also I know ants carry leaves on their back to make their nest.’

    I love our Mini Beast topic. It it so interesting! My favourite mini beast is a dragonfly. They are beautiful. We have learned this poem:

    I’d like to be a dragon
    And fly across the sky
    I’d like to be a dragon
    Or be a dragonfly.

    Isabella says “i love butterflies because they are so colourful. I see them in our garden, they are usually yellow or white but I would love to see a blue butterfly too. Sometimes I try to catch them but it is very difficult.

    There are lots of ants in the garden too and they dig little holes.
    Ants are always fun and they eat all types of food and sometimes we see them carrying things on their back too.”

  6. My favourite minibeast is called a water boatman. Sometimes it’s called a pond skater. You can find them in ponds. I like this minibeast because it looks as though it is skating on top of the water.
