Hello! I hope you are all well this morning.
In our Letters and Sounds Phonics lesson yesterday we were taught about the split digraph 'u-e' by a lady called Alex. If you haven't watched one for a while, maybe you could give it another go this week - it is really important that we learn all of our Phase 5 phonics sounds.
In our Literacy work today we are going to be thinking about one of my favourite minibeasts.
It has 6 legs.
It has 2 antennae.
It has wings and it can fly.
It eats greenfly and plants.
It bleeds from its knees when it feels threatened.
It is often red with black spots (although can be other colours too).
Have you guessed it yet?
It is a ladybird.
A ladybird is a type of insect. Insects all have 3 pairs of legs (6 in total), 2 antennae and their body is made up of 3 different parts. These parts are called the head, the thorax and the abdomen. Not all minibeasts are insects. Can you think of any other insects?
For your work today I would like you to watch the short video link about ladybirds. Then I would like you to carefully label the parts of the ladybird and finally I would like you to listen to and enjoy the story of, 'The Bad Tempered Ladybird.'
Lots of Ladybird links!!!
