Stick Insects in Year 1

Stick Insects in Year 1

Year 1 will be looking at animals and their habitats in Science this term and, through class discussion, it emerged that they were interested in stick insects, their habitats and how to care for them. It was decided that, in order to properly study stick insects, Year 1 would get some for the classrooms!

Pupils waited patiently for their new arrivals, preparing for them by making habitats and coming up with names for their new friends, and we’re delighted to say that the stick insects have arrived! Mrs. Robinson’s class have come up with the names Flash, Bella, THGL, Mr. Stink, Flash and Bella for their stick insects, while Mrs. Howard’s class are still picking the right names for their new classmates.

Pupils will now learn how best to care for the stick insects and will get the opportunity to handle them in Science lessons. We will keep everyone updated on their progress via Twitter and our mobile app.
