Ugly Bug Ball

Reception classes livened up a damp, dull Friday last week by arriving at school disguised as the most adorable bugs imaginable.  Ladybirds, butterflies, spiders and even a worm came to school with packs of party fayre later to be consumed in large quantities before the final dancing finale.  Making children’s learning enjoyable and memorable provides a marker to recall those scientific facts that were taught. The life cycle of a butterfly, how many legs arachnids have, where minibeasts can be discovered in the environment and how to read, write and explain to others all of these interesting facts. 

Earlier in the week the same children visited Smithills Farm along with a willing posse of parent helpers. They met young farm animals and handled them and the adults even held a huge snake.

  1. My son has really enjoyed his first year at Beech House and his little sister is looking forward to joining him there in September.
    Thank you to all the staff for their hard work in helping our children to thrive.
