For science this week, we are going to look back on our learning about animals including humans.

First, can you go on a minibeast hunt in your garden or local woods? Fill in the sheet to see which minibeasts you managed to find and which ones you still need to look out for.


Next, go to and watch the educational video about life cycles.

Can you create your own poster of the lifecycle of a butterfly? Have a look at the example to help you but try to be as creative as you can. We can’t wait to see what you create!



Creative Task

We usually have Mr Taylor come in once a week to help us with our music skills, but here, you can watch the videos and have a go at making a musical instrument out of any recycling or other materials you find in your house!
