About this deal

To teach the fantastic topic of minibeasts at KS1, you can use our incredible range of minibeasts for kids UK teaching resources. Featuring minibeasts for KS1 life cycle activities, role-plays and interactive games for kids. Cody the Caterpillar by Twinkl Originals - Cody loves being a caterpillar, but all her friends keep telling her how nice it will be when she finally turns into a butterfly. She’s nervous about the change, so will she be brave enough to do it? This story is great for teaching butterfly lifecycles and how to deal with change.

BBC Teach has a collection of short videos for KS1 that explain the characteristics of minibeasts and insects and how minibeasts use camouflage. Having stories like these minibeast books for early years is important, since children need to read before being able to engage in the written word that’s everywhere around them. Minibeasts can be found in almost every area of the UK. They are most commonly found in wooded areas, like parks for example. However, because of urbanisation it's not unusual to find minibeasts right on your doorstep. As long as they have the necessary means to live like food and a suitable habitat - minibeasts can pretty much thrive anywhere in the UK! Children can start to use this as an opportunity to express themselves, either verbally or in writing.Storytelling is a great way to engage young children in a relaxing and calming activity. You can use these great suggestions of minibeast books for early years children to help you plan your provisions and target skills in all seven skill development areas. Why not try some themed extension activities? You could use our Incy Wincy Spider Collection to support teaching on Keith Chapman's version of the favoured nursery rhyme. This list contains a lovely selection of minibeast books for early years, both fiction and non-fiction, that can be used to support your teaching on this fun and engaging topic. These brilliant stories include 'The Bugliest Bug' by Carol Diggory Shields, 'The Bad Tempered Ladybird' by Eric Carle, 'Snail Trail' by Ruth Brown, and lots more, to help you plan some fun and exciting lessons for the little ones. BBC Bitesize features a range of videos, text resources and a quiz to help children in KS1 learn more about minibeasts. There are some exceptions to this, including the insect known as the greater water boatman and pond skaters. These minibeasts are super swimmers.
