We hope you've all had a lovely and busy week.

It's been great seeing all your lovely play and creations.Tomorrow our secret reader is going to read 'What the Ladybird Heard'.

Can you describe what you see to your families using just actions and sounds?

Cut out ladybirds and see how many spots you can decorate it with and make maps of the farm, thinking about the different animals that live there.

Next weeks letter and sound is L.

Take care
Jo and the team
