Week beginning 11th May. 'What the Ladybird Heard' challenge.

This weeks theme is linked to the story of 'What the Ladybird Heard'. If you have the story at home maybe an adult or an older sibling can read it too you. You can also hear Mrs Wisbey reading the story in a video that will be downloaded soon.

This weeks challenge is a photo challenge. Can you take a picture of a ladybird or another creature in your garden or during your walk. If the creatures are being shy and hiding you could always take a picture of one of your cuddly toys.

Here are some ideas of other things you could try.



Can you make a bug hotel using a plastic bottle, sticks and anything else you think they might like. Where would be a good place to put it?

How about going on a bug scavenger hunt and seeing if you can find any of the mini beasts in the sheet below. How many can you find of each one? Maybe you could make a mark on the sheet for each one you find.

Can you create your very own map of a farm like the one in the story. What animals would you have on your farm and why? Where would they live?

Paint half a potato red and print it onto paper to create a ladybird. When it is dry add on some antennae and spots. Make sure you draw the same amount of spots on each side of the ladybird. How many spots are there in total on your ladybird? Can you count carefully while touching each spot as you count.

If you have any play dough you could try and make a bug sculpture.

When the weather improves, maybe you could create a chalk obstacle course for yourself and your family to complete. You could ask an adult to do the writing on your course.
