Term 5

Our topic this term is: Where does it come from?

What do plants need to grow? Where in the world do different animals come from? The children will dive head first into finding out about lots of different plants and animals in the natural world; be it a real life experience of finding mini-beasts in the outside area or finding out about different plants and habitats across the world.

As we begin to create and think critically, children will explore the natural world around them and begin to link their knowledge, skills and understanding together.


What an incredible experience we’ve had this week, with a visit from the Zoolab team. The team brought along some interestingly large ‘minibeasts’ and other animals for us to learn about. Those of us who were feeling brave enough to, even had the opportunity to touch some of them. We thought they were a mixture of ‘hard’, ‘slimy’ and ‘fluffy’.

We have started the term with a ‘Minibeast Day Lift off’ and what fun we have had! We have come to school dressed as our favourite minibeasts, and we are already enjoying learning about where they come from.
