Marvellous Maples Minibeast hunt!

Maples were fantastic today! They have been working hard learning the names of the creatures in the Superworm story. To help them to remember the names, we played a fun game at the start of the session…                                     We sang “Superworm is super long, Superworm is super strong, Find his friend -don’t get it wrong, And then we’ll sing more Superworm song!” 

Everyone took turns to listen for their name, then ran around the circle to select the creature Mrs. Smith named. (remember to click the photos to make them bigger)

Then we headed into the forest to look for real mini-beasts.

Everyone worked really hard, looking all over, under logs and on the ground

Look at some of the things we found…IMG_0393IMG_0419IMG_0403IMG_0398IMG_0404IMG_0407IMG_0416

We looked closely at a spider, discussed what an insect looked like and named lots of mini-beasts. If you would like to find out about some insects, there are some great videos here-http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/life/Insect/by/rank/all

    I liked looking for super worms friends, crow and lizard.

      You found lots of Superworm’s friends didn’t you Ruby? I don’t think that we will find a real lizard in our forest though…maybe just a picture!
