English - A vs An
“A” is used before words starting in consonant sounds and “an” is used before words starting with vowel sounds. It doesn't matter if the word is an adjective, a noun, an adverb, or anything else; the rule is exactly the same.

Science - mini-beast hunt
Your garden, local outdoor area or playground are habitats for many different animals. In fact, within each area, there are lots of individual habitats where all sorts of small creatures have adapted to live in those surroundings. Take some paper to sketch and make notes on what you find in each of these habitats. Look carefully and take your time, remember to wash your hands thoroughly once you have finished.
Leaf Litter: Collect a heap of rotting leaves. Carefully sift through the leaves and look for ceratures. Replace the leaf litter when you have finished.
Under logs: Lift logs gently to investigate what lives there. Remember to always leave habitats as you find them by replacing the log.
In rotten wood: Find a rotting log and see how many different types of creatures are living under, or on the inside of it. The rotting wood will eventually be returned to the soil, the nutrients becoming available to the roots of the living trees.
You will probably be able to name some of the more common minibeasts you find but there may be several you cannot put a name to. An identification book will help you but you can also use a key. Here is one specially designed to identify the more common animals found living in leaf litter and under logs.
The creatures living in these habitats play a key role in helping to break down plant material and releasing trapped nutrients back to the soil, where they will help the next generation of plants to grow strong.
