This coming week we begin Learning Block 1; Looking after minibeasts. We will begin by introducing the story Snail Trail. This book tells a story from the perspective of a minibeast as he explores and travels across a small area of vegetable patch. This will begin our learning about size and how to compare different sizes in terms of what is small and what is big in different perspectives. We will think about how precious and delicate little things can be. In circle time we will practice handling minibeasts gently and talk about how we can also be gentle and kind to each other.

The Big question is How can we care for mini-beasts? This will lead us into an enquiry and discussion about habitats and food that insects eat as well as how to be respectful when handling them.  


This week we will practice using the Personal Quality Respect. We will continue our learning in caring for and being gentle with insects and living things. We are learning to respect nature.
