The Great Bug Hunt 2020 - Usually undertaken in school but has now been extended to home learning. The challenge is simple – take your children into the garden or any outside space you own and see what bugs they can find!
Simply point them at the nearest hedges, flower beds, trees, long grass, logs, stones, rocks let them explore and then report back to us what they have found.
Make it into a project – if they find a spider or woodlouse, find out all about it. Draw it, examine it (carefully!), what does it eat, where does it live – maybe even write a story or poem about it, design a poster, shoot a video and then email by the 12th June to firstname.lastname@example.org (use mailbigfile free to send large files).
Maybe you’ll find a spider under the bed, maybe you’ll have a bug hunt indoors, maybe your explorers could learn about a habitat or insect online, the options are endless – with a little bit of imagination…
