Thank you for sending me photographs of your ladybird work. Mitchell, your potato prints are super! Freya, I find the different animal noises in 'What the Ladybird Heard' really funny!

Thank you Wilf, super Ladybird work! :-)

Good morning everyone! 

I hope you all enjoyed learning about ladybirds last week and found out lots of interesting facts about them. This week we are going to be finding out about dragonflies. Don't forget, if you have a favourite minibeast that you would like to find out more about you could always send me a message on our class blog :-) 


Here are your activities for today 


This week we will be continuing recognising, ordering and counting with numbers to 20. Using the numbers 0-20 from last week, I would like you to go on a number hunt! Ask your grown up to hide the numbers around your house or in your garden. Can you find them all? Once you have found the numbers, can you place them in the correct order from 0-20?  


Watch the Youtube clip below-you will find out lots of interesting facts about Dragonflies! Can you tell me what is interesting about a Dragonfly's wings? Write your answers into a sentence and send your writing to me either as a photograph or a post on our blog.

Dragonflies For Kids

Good morning Reception! How are you all today? I hope you are enjoying finding out about Dragonflies. Did you know that Dragonflies have amazing eyesight? Their eyes wrap around the top of their head and have 50,000 lenses inside them. Wow! 

Here are your activities for today 


You will need: paint, trays, a pencil, paper 

Draw circles on a piece of paper and put different coloured paints in shallow trays. Choose a number between 1-20. Dip your finger in the paint and add that many petals to the circles, making a flower. Can you write the number to match in the middle of the circle? Fill your paper with lovely flowers! 


Can you label a drawing of a dragonfly, using these words-
