You may have noticed that we have a 'minibeast hotel' on our FS playground. This was very kindly made by a parent at school a few years ago. We have to fill the space inside with different things to encourage the minibeasts to move in. We inspected what was already inside then added extra comforts and natural materials to tempt them. The children wanted to fill it with twigs, bark and dried leaves that would make it cosy for our guests. Another idea we had was to create a rockpile to see if that attracted any creatures.
One of our priorities was 'tender loving care' and respecting any minibeasts that we may find.
We are always very busy in FS2! We want our children to have fun whilst also becoming independent learners.
