Learn about the 4 Seasons
Sheet of paper for each Ladybird divided into 4 seasons Colouring markers or crayons
Talk to the Ladybirds about the current season: What is the weather like? What kind of clothes do you wear? What is happening with the trees and flowers at this time of year? Then develop this discussion to include all 4 seasons.
The Ladybirds will then work on drawing their own pictures for each season.
This seasonal song could be used at the end of the activity to revise the key points of the different seasons.
Tune: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush
Here we go round the year again, the year again, the year again,
Here we go round the year again, to greet the different seasons.
Wintertime is time for snow, to the south the birds will go.
It’s too cold for plants to grow, because it is the winter.
In the springtime days grow warm, on the plants the new buds form,
Bees and bugs come out to swarm, because it is the spring.
In summertime the days are hot, ice cold drinks I drink a lot!
At the beach I’ve got a spot, because it is the summer.
Autumn is here, the air is cool, days are short, it’s back to school,
Raking leaves is now the rule, because it is the autumn.
