The Bad Tempered Ladybird

Sunday 21 April 2024

Welcome to the Summer term!! I can’t believe we are in our final term of the school year, this year has absolutely flown by so far!

This week our focus book has been The Bad Tempered Ladybird by Eric Carle. 

The children have really enjoyed this story and have had fun joining in with the repeated lines. In class we have enjoyed making ladybirds and looking at the life cycle of a ladybird. We even discovered some ladybird facts. For example a group of ladybirds is called a loveliness.

Help at home: go on a walk and look out for some ladybirds, see if you can find a loveliness of ladybirds and count how many you can find.

Our Word of the week this week was frustrated the children have really enjoyed using this during their learning.

“I was frustrated when I was hungry and my dinner wasn’t ready so my mummy gave me a starter.”

“I was frustrated with my little brother for breaking my Lego.”

In Forest School we have practiced our drilling skills by using the hand drill to put holes in wood, this has helped us to get ready to make a Bug Hotel next week. We also did some litter picking to make sure we keep our school grounds safe for the animals that live here.

Help at Home On Monday 22nd April it is World Earth can you so something with your grown ups to celebrate our wonderful Earth.

Next week our focus book is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
