What the Ladybird Heard

This week Robins enjoyed a Julia Donaldson favourite- ‘What the Ladybird Heard’. It has inspired lots of discussions around farm animals and their young. On our adventure walk we spotted chickens, horses, alpacas and sheep with their lambs. We also thought about the wild animals that live at Forest School and Robins searched the site for signs of animal life which mostly consisted of rabbit droppings! Having drawn some beautifully detailed story maps of the farm in this week’s story, the children practised their digraphs to label the animals and to write speech bubbles. Robins also wrote in whole sentences to create farm animal riddles. In Maths we have been combining 2 groups to find the total using dotty dominoes, dotty dice and dotty ladybirds!
