A Close Encounter !

Year 5 and 6 children have had a close encounter with some special visitors! Mrs Hepworth brought her pet stick insects into school for us to observe as part of our Living Things Science topic.



We spent time carefully observing the stick insects and then carried out our own research finding out lots of interesting facts about them. We presented our findings in  labelled observational  drawings which looked fantastic !


Did you Know ?  Stick insects adapt to their environment

Whilst we were observing the stick insects we noticed that they camouflaged  themselves by pretending to be sticks. They even wobbled as if they were a stick blowing in the breeze !
