Minibeasts, Making our own information texts and our trip to Buchan Country Park

2S have had a wonderful time this term learning all about mini-beasts and habitats. We have been making our own information texts based on our chosen mini-beast. We have used other information books, CD Roms, the internet and our school trip to help us find out information. Our books contain a contents page, lots of information, hand drawn pictures, images from the internet and we have made an index page for the back of our book.

For our school trip we went to Buchan Country Park. We went on a scavenger hunt to identify where different mini beasts lived and plants grew. In the afternoon, we had the opportunity to investigate different types of mini beast and look at them very closely under the microscope. After that we went outside and did some pond dipping. That was our favourite bit.
