Ideas to try at home: What the Ladybird Heard.

Listen to the story read by the author, Julia Donaldson. Use the counting and sorting activities on Twinkl. In your garden or out on your walk, have a look to see if you can find any ladybirds (or any other bugs), try to take a photo to show your teachers, we would love to see what you find! 
Ask your child to retell the story to you, talk about what happens in the ‘beginning’, ‘middle’ and ‘end’ of the story. Talk about the characters and the story setting. Most importantly, have fun!
