Autumn Term 1 - Wriggle and Crawl

Wriggle and Crawl


Our Cornerstones project this term is called Wriggle and Crawl. Throughout the project we will be gaining lots of knowledge and understanding about insects, their habitats and what they need to survive in order to answer our project question; Why are insects important?


Visit our class page regularly to follow our learning journey throughout the Wriggle and Crawl project. We can't wait to share all of our fantastic learning experiences with you! 

Take a look at our project knowledge organiser to see what knowledge you will be learning throughout our Wriggle and Crawl project.

Week 4 

In science we have been learning about food chains. We have investigated what foods butterflies like to eat and made some butterfly food to see how many butterflies came to visit. We have also spent time creating our own food chains.

In science we have been working together to make the caterpillar microhabitats that we designed last week. The children thought carefully about the materials they were using to represent the different textures in a caterpillar microhabitat.

Week 3

After we researched Caterpillars, the children worked together to write as many facts as they could remember ready for writing our Non-chronological reports later in the week.

Week 2 

This week the children have been working extremely hard!


In literacy we have been learning all about recounts. The children have learnt that recounts are in the 'past tense' and that it is important to use 'time words' to organise our writing and make sure it is in Chronological order! I have been very impressed with how well the children have been remembering new vocabulary. 

The children then went on to plan and write their very own recounts all about our Mini beast hunt from our WOW day at the very beginning of term. 


This week the children have also spent more time identifying insects and we have began looking at Habitats but will be spending more time on this next week. 


In maths this week the year one children have continued learning all about numbers to ten, ordering numbers and comparing numbers. The year two children have been working on numbers to 100! They have been spending lots of time learning about place values and have also been comparing and ordering numbers! 


Wow! What an extremely busy week in class one!
