Owls 2017-18

Owls Class blog 27.04.18

This week we read some rhymes from Giles Andreae’s book, ‘Mad About Minibeasts.’ We thought about the language used and how it related to the minibeast.

‘We have written a rhyme about minibeasts. We have looked at dragonflies, flies, slugs, snails, spiders and caterpillars.’ Finley

‘We used words that started with the same sound.’ Harry

‘This is called alliteration.’ Wesley

Here are some examples of our rhymes;

‘Ladybird, ladybird,

What do you see?

I see a scary spider scurrying towards me.’

 ‘Ladybird, ladybird,

What do you see?

I see a slow, slimy snail slithering towards me.’


We have also been outside finding our own minibeasts.

‘We made a wormery using soil, sand and stones. We put these into a bottle.’ Dexter

‘We have been watching some of Jess’ minibeast adventures on CBeebies.’ Tommy

‘We looked at living and non-living with Mrs Kidd.’  George

‘A plant and a tree are living but a wheelbarrow and a shed are non-living.’ Samuel

‘We have made a flower and labelled all the different parts.’ Reece

‘We looked at parts of trees aswell.’ Emma

‘In maths we have been adding 10 to a number.’ William

‘We used a long piece of paper and jumped along in 10s’. Jenson
