Awe and wonder
“Take a good look at God’s wonders – they will take your breath away.”
Learning Objective: Can read some common irregular words.
What the Ladybird Heard
Draw the animals featured in the story and write a caption or make a speech bubble next to each one!
Play a yes/no game with the attached questions. If you have the facilities to print them off then there are some yes/no cards to use. Otherwise a grown up can read the questions and you can make your own yes/no cards to hold up or write yes or no on a whiteboard if you have one.
PLEASE SEE PDF DOCUMENT at the bottom of the page
Learning Objective: Uses everyday language of measures (size, weight and capacity) when comparing quantities or solving problems.
Create a mini mud kitchen! If you can use some pans but if not use some recycled containers of different sizes. If you have access to an outside space see whether you can mix up some earth and water to fill the containers with. (You can just use water).
Can you create some dishes for the creatures in What that Ladybird Hears, or maybe some of the dishes from another story, perhaps some Owl Ice Cream?
Set out the containers in order of size.
Which one is the heaviest?
Which one is the largest or smallest?
Which one has more in it?
Expressive Arts and Design
Learning Objective: Safely uses and explores a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.
Create a ladybird using a medium of your choice. If you paint a picture, can you think about how to add texture? What is texture? Perhaps you could think of an unusual way of creating it like in the example below?
