Bugs Alive!!

Today is our second day back at school for term 2. We completed a placemat activity that shows some of the things we know already about mini beasts. We will do this activity again at the end of term to show just how much we have learnt about mini beasts and their environments here at school. Some of the things we know about mini-beasts and how they help us are:
Butterflies live near flowers - Maria

Ants live on the ground - Ava
Bees help us because they make honey for us - Jackson
