This half term in Year 4, we have started our new topic called ‘What thrives in Halliwell?’ This is all about exploring the different plants, animals and habitats that live in our local area. 

Today we started our topic by looking at what plants and animals live in our school grounds. We went on a plant and mini-beast hunt. What plants and animals did you find today Year 4? What did you learn about where they live?

We are looking forward to learning more about plants and animals this half term!

    In my group we found a little fly and we kept in our tub for a bit before we swapped around so it was fair. Then after we had swapped we found an awful lot of snails around the KS2 playground. We had a: magnifying glass, a tube and I had a little stick so I could poke around in the soil for centipedes. We also found: dandelions, daisies, buttercups and clovers. Some other groups had said they had found ivy but I really don’t know. In the KS1 playground I found a woodlouse which is really rare around our school.
    I had a fantastic time doing the mini beast hunt.
    It was enjoyable

    When you learn about bugs you ask yourself questions like, How many bugs are on the earth? Or were there bugs before human on earth? Many bugs are tiny to the eye. Do you know what bugs eat? They can have a lot of leg or 0 legs bugs can be in different shape and sizes. What type of bugs have you seen?

    In my group we found a massive worm we put it in our tubs and didn’t let it out .Then we switched around. Then we went on to find some flowers and we found: Dandelions, buttercups and lots of other plants and animals. The most interesting bug to me was the massive worm because it hat lines and had brown inside of it and the worm came out of the circle.

    I really enjoyed the mini beast lesson because we got to explore some different kind of insects and lovely flowers . We found insects all around the playground. My partners were called Zeinab, Barbara, Sana and finally Iman. Then Finally our lovely kind teacher told us that we can go to the KS 1 playground to find more insects and plants. After that me Alexander and Megan got to put the insects back to its safe place.
