The children in Nursery have taken a great interest in minibeasts and this week in particular we have been looking for ladybirds! Together we have enjoyed making playdough ladybirds by adding black beans to the their backs and we have made ladybird art work, carefully counting spots onto their backs. We have loved playing ladybird bingo, and matching the number of spots to the numicon and numeral.
Our stories this week have been What the Lady Bird Heard Next, What the Ladybird Head, The Bad Tempered Ladybird and The Very Lazy Ladybird. We have enjoyed making the animal noises in the stories and talking about the different emotions, how this might feel and what it looks like. The children have also been singing ‘5 little ladybugs’ and ‘Ladybird Ladybird Fly Away Home’.
