Creepy Crawlies Q&A

Barber Home – 28 May

Calling all insect explorers – ever wanted to know more about bugs?

Inspired by the amazing specimens in our 394-year-old print by Wenceslaus Hollar, we asked Liam Crowley, an entomologist from the University of Birmingham, to answer all your questions about our creepy crawly friends in a live Q&A session.

If you missed it, watch Liam’s stream now to learn about categories and lifecycles and view some of his collection of preserved specimens.

As home is the new school, our Barber Home family resources link to the key stage 1 and 2 curriculum to support you in the kitchen table classroom.
