- Minibeast Poster: Is there a minibeast that you know lots of information about? Or do you have any books or access to ‘Google’? Can you make a poster about a minibeast? On your poster can you draw your minibeast and label different parts of its body (e.g. wings, legs)? Some of the information you might want to include on your poster is what your minibeast eats, where it lives and if it does anything amazing (e.g. bees make honey, ants are very strong etc).
- Signs of Spring: Can you look out of your window or look in your garden for signs of spring? Can you draw or write some of these. Think about what is growing, the animals that are about, what clothes you are wearing.
