Minibeast Creative Time

Our topic this half term is all about minibeasts which is always one of my favourite topics to teach as there are endless opportunities to get creative and to go outside and explore. Reception 1 B have enjoyed creating range of minibeasts, including ladybirds, butterflies and millipedes.
