Tributterly by Emmy

Ever heard of a Tributterfly? Part of our topic this term, the children in Room 10 had to design and create their own insect. As well as that, each child had to write a report for the bug that included: name, habitat, physical appearance, behaviour, diet and any other interesting facts. Well done Emmy for doing a great job!

This movie is our item that we did on the day.

What's a Wormfly by Mary

This term our topic is called "Little Critters". For writing the children learned about report writing for insects and there were four main areas that they had to write about. They were: Physical Appearance, Habitat, Diet and Any other interesting facts. Then, the children had to write a report about a bug that was made-up and named by them. This is Mary's report and she has done an amazing job. Well done Mary!
