Ladybird Hunt

Tuesday, 3rd September, 2013

In First Class Red we have been noticing that there are lots of ladybirds living in the school yard at the moment. Today we decided to go on a ladybird hunt and we collected ladybirds to take back to the class for a closer inspection with magnifying glasses.

Please look back soon to see some photographs of our ladybird hunt :).

We have also been learning lots of interesting things about ladybirds. Today we created diamond poems about ladybirds. Here's one that the whole class came up with together...

After brainstorming one as a class we all wrote our own diamond poem about ladybirds. Here are some of the lovely poems that we came up with!
