Cian absolutely loves ‘Teeny Tiny Creatures’, so insisted on singing the theme tune, before showing me the creatures he had made out of lego.


Bumble bee and spider

Woodlouse, ladybird, frog, snail, butterfly and worm



Harvest mouse



Honey bee, newt, hedgehog, grasshopper, bat, dragonfly, caterpillar, lizard, moth, beetle, star fish and robin

Puffin, barnacle, red squirrel, slug, earwig, devil’s coach horse beetle, sea anemone, owl, daddy long legs, prawn, wasp, water vole, woodpecker, jelly fish and blue tit

All lined up in various straight lines.

He then finished off by singing the closing credits.

DfES Early Learning Goals (2017)

Communication and language

ELG 01 – Listening and attention:

Children listen attentively in a range of situations. They listen to stories, accurately anticipating key events and respond to what they hear with relevant comments, questions or actions. They give their attention to what others say and respond appropriately, while engaged in another activity.

ELG 02 – Understanding:

Children follow instructions involving several ideas or actions. They answer ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about their experiences and in response to stories or events.

ELG 03 – Speaking:

Children express themselves effectively, showing awareness of listeners’ needs. They use past, present and future forms accurately when talking about events that have happened or are to happen in the future. They develop their own narratives and explanations by connecting ideas or events.

Physical development

ELG 04 – Moving and handling:

Children show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements. They handle equipment and tools effectively, including pencils for writing.

ELG 14 – The world:

Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.
