Home Learning – week nine

We have been so proud of how well our Ladybirds families have coped with being isolated at home for the past nine weeks. You have learned so much from being with your families; you have developed cooking and gardening skills, as well as taking turns and collaborating with siblings, learned how to cycle, played imaginatively on your own – and enjoyed time with four legged family members too!

And new skills are still being learned this week, including stone skimming, renovating garden benches, crabbing, tree climbing, how to barbeque – and using claw hammers, drills and electric screwdrivers!

And – very important – pedicures!

The snake at the hall is growing by the day – but still needs a few more stones I think…….

….and our Ladybirds garden is looking great. Thank you to the Garden Team’s latest member, Richard!

Over the past few weeks you’ve been sending in your photos for us to share and keep in touch with one another. This week, the Ladybirds staff have sent in photos of themselves when they were pre-schoolers – can you work out who is who?!

One little Ladybird received a very posh alfresco birthday breakfast of scrambled eggs and salmon on her special day – we all hope she had a lovely day.

Ladybirds will be re-opening on Friday 5th June for a few children to start with, but this will be carefully monitored every two weeks in line with local and national government advice. Nicky and Emma are looking forward to welcoming them back!

And don’t forget Ladybirds have joined the Wildlife Trusts in celebrating 30 Days Wild in June. Have a look at the website for ideas https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/ and please send in photos of your activities!

Keep safe everyone
