The Ladybird's Worldwide Adventures So Far!

24 May 2018

This summer at The Stables we are going to be learning all about the World with the help of our favourite book, What The Ladybird Heard, by Julia Donaldson.

The ladybird has been very busy, flying around the world, listening for news to share with us!

We have been asking family and friends of The Stables to send postcards to our nursery from around the world with the words “I am the ladybird and I heard…” with a sentence telling us about the country or city the postcard was sent from. We will pin our postcards to our world map to see just how far our ladybird has travelled!

The ladybird has been keeping the Postman very busy so far! We have received nearly 100 postcards, from 27 different countries… and can you believe that one was from Santa Claus himself, all the way from Lapland!

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped so far. The ladybird is excited for more adventures, so please keep the postcards coming to us here at The Stables using the address below:
