EYFS ‘Going on Bug Hunt’

May 5, 2017

EYFS have been learning about Mini beasts and are now able now to differentiate between insects and spiders. They learned that insects have got 6 legs and 3 body parts, while the spiders have got 8 legs and 2 body parts. They then had a lot of fun outside bug hunting in the garden using nets and magnifying glasses. They were also involved in various hands-on activities like spider hand printing and making spider webs, developing their hand-eye coordination and control and had the opportunity to grasp new mathematical concepts like ’symmetry ’and ’the same’ whilst carrying out their investigations. So don’t be surprised if they come up to you all excited with a bug they’ve caught wanting to tell you all about it!
