Minibeasts Summer Project.

Hello everybody! I hope you are all okay and staying safe at home. Last week, we put a new project on the Home Learning section of the website for the summer term, all about Minibeasts.

You can on this link to view the summer project. https://sites.google.com/rushallict.co.uk/education-continuity/arp#h.wpywc9e4o06q

There are lots of ideas on there for activities you can do all about minibeasts. I thought I would try some of them out too. This week I made a small minibeast house. You could try this at home, using an empty milk carton. some lollipop sticks and some sticks you can find in the garden, or if you go out for a walk near your house.

First I found an empty milk bottle and gave it a good wash so it wasn’t smelly.
Then I cut the milk bottle in half. I had to use a sharp knife so it is definitely a job for a grown up helper.
I turned the milk bottle on it’s side and started filling it with sticks. I used sticks of different shapes and sizes to leave different size gaps for insects to hide in.
When I had filled my milk bottle with sticks, I placed it in my garden. I put it by a plant that attracts a lot of bees and other minibeasts.
My dog Truffle came to see what I was doing. We will have a look next week to see if we have got any visitors.

I would love to see what minibeast activities you have been up to. You can comment on the blog, or send pictures of what you have done to:

Please put my name in the subject line so it gets to me.

Take care and have a fun week,

Miss Kindon 🙂
