Our Topic for Summer 2 is Wriggle and Crawl

Grab your coat and pooter - we're going out and about on a minibeast hunt!  

Learn about bees and worms and butterflies.  Carry out investigations to find out, like how far a snail travels in a day or how a spider catches its prey.

Can you animate how your favourite bug transforms from one form to another, perhaps a caterpillar to a butterfly.  On your belly, legs at the ready, it's time to wriggle and crawl.
