Understanding the World

Using books or the internet, find out some facts about ladybirds. You could make a poster or write some sentences to display your new knowledge. You could even make a video of you sharing what you have learnt.


Expressive Arts and Design

Create a picture of the ladybird.

You could use magazines, tissue paper or coloured paper to cut up lots of red and black pieces and make a collage. You could use paint to make a reflection picture – fold your paper in half, unfold it and paint half of a ladybird on one side and then refold the paper to make a mirror image to complete the picture.



When you share a story today, can you look out for the tricky word ‘the’?
