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.  A bee has 6 legs, 2 pairs or wings and 5 eyes.
