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.
