Week Commencing 21st February 2022

Welcome back after the half term holidays!  This half term our topic will be ‘Minibeasts’.  We have already started to learn lots of different facts about bugs.  We did an experiment to find out why spiders do not stick to their webs but other bugs do.  We had to touch our sellotaped spider web with our fingers and they stuck.  We then dipped our fingers in oil and tried again.  This time our fingers did not stick.  We now know that spiders have a special oil on their feet so they do not stick to their own webs.   We were lucky to have Cheryl visit us from Grays library to read us a story.  She gave us all a special book pack to take home.  We have made caterpillars and ordered minibeasts by size.  We have been counting spots to put on our         ladybirds.
