Beeches go mini-beast hunting

It may have been a wet windy day today, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of Beeches class! They had a brilliant time learning about the tiny creatures that live in our woods…

They learnt where to look, and how to carefully handle the mini-beasts they found, as well as learning to identify and name them.

At the end of the morning, we sat together to look closely at and discuss each mini-beast we found. We learnt that insects all have 6 legs, that spiders have 8 legs, we discussed the difference between a centipede a millipede, talked about how fast the beetle moved in comparison to the worm, looked at lots and lots of legs on the woodlouse and enjoyed watching the slug extend and retract it’s tentacles!
