Term 2a

For our World Around Us topic this term we will be focusing on ‘Birds, Bugs and Beasts’. 🦜🐛🐘

We will be looking at many different areas within this topic including;

Literacy links

  • Putting animals in alphabetical order.
  • Finding animals in the dictionary.
  • Activities relating to The Owl Who was Afraid.

Numeracy links

  • Symmetry of butterflies. 
  • Measuring lengths of minibeasts.
  • Learning about birds of prey.
  • Learning about the parts of bird, insects and animals – labelling. 
  • Listening to birdsong sounds. 

Here are some activities you may like to try to do at home to support your child’s learning at school.

  • You can draw some animals using ‘how to draw’ on YouTube. Always get your parents permission.
  • Read non-fiction text to find out some interesting facts to share with your class.
  • Create your own fact file about an animal of your choice.
  • Check out the RSPB website to identify birds.
  • Practice dictionary skills at home and alphabetical order.
  • Create a graph of your families favourite type of animal.
  • Make a tally or bar chart of any birds you see in your garden.
  • Have fun making a 3D model of a bird, bug or beast out of things you have at home.
  • Idenify birdsong sound in your garden.
  • Go on a mini beast hunt in your garden.

Don’t forget to have lots of fun.
