What is a grasshopper?

We HOP to it and take any opportunity to extend our children’s learning… 💚Outside Emma was busy looking at the books with some of her children and their definite favourite was ‘The Bug Hotel’ book and the other non-fiction ones about insects. After much bug hunting and discussion the children wanted to know and find out more about grasshoppers… they were very familiar through looking around themselves with bees and ants and worms… grasshoppers not so much!!So Emma swiftly changed the use of her tablet from recording observations of her children at play to finding out more about grasshoppers; including some fabulous slow mo videos which really showed their unique movements…We love to learn, learn, learn and reading books and finding out more on a tablet with a supportive grown-up has been the perfect way to do it today!!
