Amazing work yesterday- you are beginning to learn facts about lots of bugs. Remember to use finger spaces between each word and if a word is tricky to spell use your Fred fingers to count the sounds and then say them in order.


Today we will make another fact page about a different minibeast.



Before we start- listen to this super fun song all about bugs!




Think of a different bug to write about. If you have already chosen a bug that can fly you may wish to choose one that cannot or vice versa.


Talk about your chosen minibeast by answering the following questions.  

Write down your answers on a spare piece of paper.


Name of minibeast: _________________________________________


Can it fly? Crawl? Climb? _________________________________________________


Does it have legs/wings? How many? ________________________________


Tell me something special

e.g. 'It can spin webs' or 'It has the same number of spots on each wing'






Open your Minibeast Book to the next clean page.

In the top half of your page do your best drawing- remember to include a setting e.g. on a leaf, on a flower, in a web or in the grass.

You may wish to add labels to your diagram.





Now, just like yesterday, use your answers to write some fantastic sentences using a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop at the end. Try to write up to three short sentences. 


Challenge- write a longer sentence using the word 'and'.

E.g. A bee can fly and it can make honey.



Use the sentence checker below to make sure you haven't forgotten anything important!

Complete the doubling worksheet. Ladybirds have the same number of spots on each wing. Count the spots on each wing and then draw the same number of spots on the other. Count the total to find the answer e.g. double 5 is 10.
