In Year One we are learning about the different groups of vertebrates in our science topic and we have also been thinking about the animals that live in or visit our school grounds. After some discussion we realised that we could also find some animals that are invertebrates. We thought about how we could attract invertebrates. We decided to make some little ‘homes’ out of flower pots, into which we put some leaves and twigs to make them more snug. We also added some sugar for the bugs to eat. The children had some great ideas about the type of food we could put in – including honey, syrup, nectar and fruit. The children placed their ‘bug homes’ in different places around the school grounds. We will go back in a few days to see if any invertebrates have found a new home!
