Literacy and Maths Group 1


Task 1: I would like you to create tongue twisters all about insects.

Here are insects you could write about: ants, moths, butterflies, ladybirds, bees, wasps, dragonflies, earwigs, spider, beetle, snail, slug, caterpillar, woodlouse, worm and fly.

Task 2: Can you create insect riddles for other people in your house or Miss Hunter to guess. Here is an example, see if you can guess my insect:

I’m a yellow and black insect
But to say I’m a wasp would be wrong
I am something that makes honey
And you might see me bumble along
What am I?

Task 3: I would like you to create an acrostic poem for an insect. Here is an example:

Spider Spider

People are scared of spiders.

It has eight legs.

Different spiders are venomous.

Each spider builds different webs.

Red-back spiders are vicious with their bite.
