One of our books for this half term is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We have enjoyed reading the story and adding actions to help us to re-tell it. We have created story maps, thought about the language used in the story and have created a beginning, middle and end. We then started to change the story and created our very own The Very Hungry ?? stories. We came up with lots of interesting new characters. We then went on a food hunt to find lots of different items for our new characters to eat. At the end we also used our imaginations to think of something different to come out of the cocoon, we had some fabulous ideas!!
As part of this topic we are also the very proud owners of our very own HUNGRY CATERPILLARS! 5 of them in-fact! We have learnt about caterpillar life cycles and have worked together to create a class display. We know how to look after our growing caterpillars and enjoy looking at them during the day - sometimes they even look like they are dancing!
