This week our focus on minibeasts continues and for later in the week there are tasks based around VE day (which takes place this Friday).

Just to clarify, where it mentions Foundation Stage or EYFS, this work is for children who started school this year. Where it mentions Y1s, this work is aimed at children in our class who are in their second year at school (this is called Year 1). Many of the tasks are suitable for all children in the class.
