This week we will continue to explore our wonderful world by looking at minibeasts and in particular the life cycle of a ladybird. If your child is not in school then please read the attached story of “Are you a ladybird?” and ask your child to make a fact file (they can draw, label and write facts) about a ladybird or a minibeast of their choice. More information on minibeasts can be found on : http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/z9fkwmn#zwdqy4j.
Ideas for activities to enhance this learning:
- Plan and make a bug hotel for your garden, your child could write down all the minibeasts that live there. What might the minibeasts need? Water, food. How will they get in?
- Go on a bug hunt – you could make a list for your child to read and tick off as they find each bug, talk about the best places to find them – cold, damp, dark places.
- Make your own model of a bug – think about the parts of its body, how many legs does it have? Does it have eyes?
If your child is in school we will be covering this here but you can repeat the activities at home or use the other activities attached.
Next week we will be looking at plants.
Hope you are keeping well,
Work for the week of 1st June
