I found woodlice, spiders, caterpillar and worms. Their habitats were made of wood and soil and they were a bit damp and dark. My favourite mini-beast was the caterpillar because it’s going to turn into a beautiful butterfly.

I found some wood lice and a spider, wood lice like to live in dark places near wood and under rocks! The spider lives in a cobweb and cobwebs are stronger than metal! My favourite mini beast is a bee because they fly around to get pollen off the flowers and make honey, bees live in a beehive! I enjoyed learning about mini beasts because they are cool and tiny! Mini beasts are special and they like to eat mud and plants! Mini beasts can hide anywhere they want and they can sometimes hide inside flowers! There are all different types of mini beasts, some have a lot of legs and some have lots of colours.
