Out and About – Searching for mini beasts at Calthorpe Haven 

Today we explored Calthorpe Haven’s micro-habitats looking for different minibeasts.  We looked carefully in lots of different places and found worms, beetles, ants, woodlice and so many other creatures on a lovely sunny day. Take a look at the pictures…:


Here is a clip that shows you how you can search around your own garden. Remember to ask your grown ups for permission to do this.

Minibeast hunting out and about

We met Jeremy Strong!

On Tuesday 17th April, the fantastically funny and talented author Jeremy Strong visited our school and shared lots of stories with us. Many of us were dressed up as our favourite characters from his books. We got a chance to ask him questions about his life and his books.


We found out that he loves writing in a quiet shed at the bottom of his garden which has a fridge filled with fruit and chocolate to snack on when he is coming up with ideas.


He always carries a notebook everywhere to write down ideas which can be from dreams he had at night and day dreams.


He has a cat called Jeeves who thinks he can write stories… but he can’t…!


One of his latest books called ‘The Genius’ took about a week to write but he can take months to complete a book. He read us parts of this book which were really hilarious.

See what else you can find out about about him on his website:
