Week 10 – Ladybirds has reopened.

What a busy week it has been both at Ladybirds and for our families at home. This week the government told us we could reopen and we welcomed six children back into our Ladybird’s nest. We are looking forward to welcoming more children back next week with lots of things planned for our Daddy’s. This week we have learned a bit about recycling, which was helped by the locals demonstrating how they use the bottle bank in the middle of our welcome back video… We enjoyed a story about Peppa Pig on Friday where her and her family visited the recycling center before learning a bit about recyclable objects ourselves with a little cutting and sticking activity. We made individual play dough globes to represent World Environment Day, we all had our own trays and followed all the instructions carefully.

Emma and Donna with the help of their little and big helpers have created the most amazing garden for us to play and explore, we are so excited to continue our garden project over the next few weeks. A huge thank you to them for all their super hard work during lockdown.

On Monday we celebrated World Oceans Day. We shared the story The Rainbow Fish and thought about how being kind to our friends makes us feel. After that we got messy with blue ocean gloop, we worked really hard to categorise the different fish in our tray into shape, size and colour. After snack we created our own rainbow fish using our handprints, we added sparkly glitter to create shimmering scales.

On Monday afternoon we went on a nature trail, we ended up looking in Stella’s garden at all the lovely vegetables and flowers that were growing. We saw the little pond she had created for her 30 days wild challenge and her hedgehog house. We had a lovely time, thank you for having us Stella.

Look at all the wonderful wild activities our families at home have been participating outside for 30 days wild, what fun they have all had.

Wow, from beach trips, to picnics, to writing in the garden, jumping, nature walks, a spot of fishing, strawberry picking, ice creams plus so much more, but most importantly smiling, having fun and creating the most amazing lockdown memories.

And if all those activities wasn’t enough there was also time for a bit of baking.

How are all your vegetables growing? Has anybody got any that are ready to eat?

Finally before we go we need to say congratulations to William, Imogen and Eleanor who completed their first “I can” goals this week by learning to wash their hands properly ready to fly our nest to start school. Also a big congratulations to Emma for her first week as a Ladybird!
