This week the children have be learning about mini beasts and noticing the different features, how many legs they have, do they have wing, what colours are etc. The children then used this knowledge to recreate bugs in using different media and materials. The had bowls or egg boxes to start their bugs but were able to choose how and what they would like for their creation.
