Wriggle and Crawl – Engage Week 3rd June 2019

The children have been enjoying celebrating their new topic ‘Wiggle and Crawl’ during Engage Week. They were excited to come into school to find new class pets- little caterpillars! The children enjoyed voting for their new names. The children went on a minibeast hunt around the grounds to find out what creatures live in the school environment. Using a paper plate, the children created their own bug craft using a range of tools and joining techniques. Later in the week, the children experienced sewing and learned how to use a running stitch to join two pieces of felt together. Although the children found this quite tricky to begin with, they quickly learned the new skill and really enjoyed making a new soft butterfly toy to take home with them. The children thoroughly enjoyed creating new pieces of artwork including painting a minibeast, using watercolours and looking carefully to draw their favourite insect from observation.
