Tigers and Kangaroos are becoming experts on “minibeasts”
We are learning about “grasshoppers”.

As the rap says:

               Grasshoppers are the strangest things

they hear with their legs

and talk with their wings

and they jump, ante they jump, and they jump, jump, jump

 

When grasshoppers old skin gets too tight

they wriggle out and grow

one that fits just right

and they jump, and they jump, and they jump, jump, jump

 

They breath through holes in their abdomen

their eyes are bulgy and wide

and they jump, and they jump, and they jump, jump, jump

 

Their jaws don't go up and down like ours

they chew from side to side

and they jump, and they jump, and they jump, jump, jump

 

Grasshoppers are famous for their strength

they can jump 200 times their length

and they jump, and they jump, and they jump, jump, jump

 

We also learnt they have holes in their abdomen to breath, and they chew sideways.

In art they turned some pegs into grasshoppers.

Outside in the playground, they dedicated some time to dramatic play:  “In the Garden”.  Some of them pretended to be minibeasts, other were pets, others “people”.  We even had bears and children going to a “restaurant”.

“Bees” are coming next.

Did you know there are three kinds of bees in the hive? We'll tell you more next time!
