Our Topic is "wriggle and crawl". We are looking at minibeasts.

Minibeasts are ‘small creatures’, like worms, snails, insects and spiders. The scientific term for them is ‘invertebrates’ – a creature without a backbone.

Because they don’t have a backbone, minibeasts tend to have other structures which support and protect them. Snails have shells, while many insects and spiders have an ‘exoskeleton’, which is a hard casing on their outside.

There are over 25,000 minibeast species in Britain.

Facts of the day:

  1. Woodlice are small animals that live in dark damp places.

  2.  They are usually brown or grey.

 

Key words of the day:

Habitat- the place where people and animals live.

Thorax- The middle bit of the body. (our thoraz is our chest)

Today we want you to be inventive, use your body parts to create a minibeast. This could be painting or drawing round your feet to make a footprint ladybird or making a handprint snail. If you have chalk you could do this in the garden and create a whole minibeast garden scene.
