Bugs in our Garden

Whilst growing vegetables in our amazing gardening project, we  noticed  a range of minibeasts lurking in the undergrowth.  Some of these are beneficial for our plants and some might not be. If you have time, could you research the names of the  minibeasts, find out whether they are helpful or harmful for our plants then write a blog to let us know using the form underneath the photos.

We are going to link this investigation with  with our geography learning by entering an online digimaps competition. We need to get as many photos of minibeasts as possible and annotate an online map of St Luke’s, so if you see any brilliant bugs at home or at your allotment, please take a photo and bring them in.

Here are a few websites to help you identify the minibeasts:

    The small green thing on a hand is called a greenfly and are very common in the uk.

    And the picture of an earwig on wood is the common female earwig

  4. I think that the worm has just come out the ground because it is very dirty.
