Good afternoon everyone,
We hope you have had a lovely morning and perhaps managed to get out into the sunshine to create a symmetrical picture. Send us a photo if you would like us to have a look at yours!
Did you know that the spots on a ladybird’s wings are symmetrical, though a ladybird can have an “odd” spot which actually spans both wings?
You can find out more facts about ladybirds on this website if you are interested: http://www.storybug.net/kids.html
I have attached two challenges for you to explore if it fits into your routine sometime this week – count the spots on one side of each ladybird on the sheet, tell an adult how many you think will be on the other side and see if you can work out how many spots each ladybird will have altogether.
Remember that ladybird spots are symmetrical and use what you know about doubles to help you!
Please don’t feel you need to print this sheet off – it can be a verbal activity!
