In Reception this half term we have been focusing on the story What the Ladybird Heard. The children were very surprised and excited when one day some small black creatures ‘appeared’ in our classrooms. We did our research to find out what they were and learnt that they were ladybird larva. The children have been caring for these from larva, to pupa, to ladybird. They have also been making observations and writing and drawing these in their very own Ladybird Observation Books!
We were delighted when they all turned into ladybirds and enjoyed releasing them and watching them fly away in the year 3/4 garden.
