Year 2 go in search of creepy crawlies!
During this half term’s STEM week, Year 2 have been learning lots about Minibeasts.
The week ended, on Friday 7th June, with a visit to the Rising Sun Country Park. Here Year 2 embarked on a day of Minibeast hunting and pond dipping.
The children went into the woods to look for Minibeasts. They found that Minibeasts like to hide from Year 2 children, so they had to look really carefully for them! They tended to be found in dark, damp places such as under rocks, trees and leaves. We found a large collection of different creatures such as spiders, slugs, worms, centipedes, snails, ants and woodlice. A huge range considering it had been such nice weather all week!
