These writing frames are an excellent resource when covering the topic of minibeast. I have used them with both reception and year one children. They have the picture of the minibeast for a visual clue, and key words relating to the individual minibeast to help with sentence writing. I usually play a What’s in the Bag? Activity first to get them thinking about describing minibeast, and then practice saying sentences using the relevant vocabulary. They then have a go at writing some of their sentences. There is a frame for ladybird, spider, snail, caterpillar, butterfly and bee.
