This week’s home learning is to help out with the BBC Breathing Places Ladybird Survey.  For this challenge have a look in your gardens and homes and try and identify ladybirds.  To help you out I’ve linked some files below from the Breathing Places website or you can use this online ladybird spotter.  The survey asks for you to look out for ladybirds andfor each ladybird you see, please note down:

  • The date
  • Location – the address/postcode of the site, or a sketch map
  • Habitat – eg indoors, garden, park, woodland

If you can take a close-up picture as well that would be great. For best results, switch off the flash, get close, zoom in and hold the camera steady.

See how you get on.  We’ll use the data for our maths in the new term, as well as sending the data off to BBC Breathing Places.

    I don’t know if I have to find as many different types of Ladybirds in the holidays or just carry on looking until we have found all of the
    ones on the sheet?
