Week 10, May half term

W/C 25th May 


With it being half term there is no 'set' home learning. However we do have some fun activities AND competitions!


Competition time!


Competition 1

The Great Bug Hunt 2020!

This is a competition for the whole country and your entries can be submitted online:


If you want to enter the competition the deadline for entries is the 12th June 2020. There is a variety of prizes available and the national winner will win a microscope.


Bugs are everywhere - you just have to look carefully.

Find a habitat (eg. hedgerow, grass, stones, trees, flowerbed) and search for some bugs.

Maybe you’ll find a spider under a bed or go on an indoor bug hunt.

You could even learn about bugs and their habitats online.


Can you count how many you find?

Can you identify (name) them? 

 Choose 1 bug that you find and make it into a project-  find out all about it.

Examine it (carefully!): Here are some things to look for, can you think of anything else?

What does it eat?

Where does it live?

How many legs does it have?

How does it move?

Make sure you are careful to not disturb the bugs or their habitat and make sure to wash your hands after exploring.

Now record what you have found.

You could:

draw it

write a story or poem about it

design a poster

shoot a video 

The options are endless – with a little bit of imagination…
