This ‘marvellous minibeast’ bundle contains:<br />
7 colourful, well-structured presentations which introduce and lead learners through the wonderful world of minibeasts. <br />
There are four specific minibeast presentations featured:<br />

opportunities to build up important ‘minibeast’ vocabulary before writing (mini whiteboard task)<br />
simple factual information to read and discuss<br />
labelling tasks and life cycle sequencing task<br />
factual writing tasks with sentence stems<br />

The Minibeast Report Writing presentation provides an opportunity for learners to plan and write a non-chronological report. It details the structure of a report, encourages the use of mind mapping and has clear graphics and suggestions to aid composition. Extension tasks are included for more able learners. Editing sheets are provided differentiated to 2 levels.<br />
Note -taking is a difficult skill. This unit of work introduces learners in a clear and structured manner with opportunities for mini whiteboard work – easily adapted to paired or trio tasks.<br />
I have included tasks and active learning throughout the presentations. Within the presentations, I have provided answer slides for immediate and easy correction. I feel that young learners benefit from clear and concise minibeast facts as many of the relevant non-fiction texts can be too difficult for early readers to access initially.<br />
Links are also provided within several of the presentations to appropriate minibeast sites that enhance and enrich the learners' experience as well as providing active tasks/games and songs.<br />
I would be delighted to receive feedback.<br />
