Bugs, bugs, bugs
Year 1/2 Integrated Project
Summer 1 2020
Science, English and Art
The insects in the book Mad about Minbeasts want to know which one is our favourite. In order to decide the children will investigate and research a range of insects, life cycles, food chains and micro habitats. They will use a variety of written ways to covey the information they discover. They will watch animals develop such as worms and butterflies. They will embrace the minibeast project through a range of skills and resources including stories, artistic interpretations and their own independent bug hunts. This will culminate in them making a decision as to which minibeast is their favourite and why, producing a detailed sculpture of that minibeast to support their choice.
Bugs, Bugs, Bugs Outcome
After reading "Mad about Minibeasts" Year 1/2 were challenged to discover as much as they could about minibeasts, in order to chose their favourite one! This "distance learning" project has seen the children in their gardens, on their allotments and out on walks finding minibeasts. I think it's safe to say everyone has enjoyed it!
Below are the wonderful minibeast models and accompanying booklets, powerpoints and even videos! We are SO proud of your efforts Year 1/2! AMAZING distance learning!! Well done!
