But he was still hungry!

Friday 26 April 2024

This week the children have really enjoyed reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle.

We explored the process of ‘Metamorphosis‘ which was a really big word for the children to try and say!

Metamorphosis is the process of changing physical form, such as the Caterpillar.

Help at home: What are the four stages of the Caterpillar lifecycle? Are there any other animals that go through this process? We may have some wigglying around in our tank in Reception…

We went BIG and created our own Caterpillar lifecycle! We also made a giant Catrepillar using natural resources in forest school.


During our story the children asked why the caterpillat needed to go to sleep for so long. This linked nicley with our living and learning statement this week – ‘I know the importance of sleep’.

Here’s what they thought..

because it’s dark

I put my jarmas on after I’ve had a bath

I get really tired and it’s time to go to bed

When you’re tired you go to sleep

My daddy is grumpy in the morning

I have my teddies in my bed


This weeks sound is: ‘W’ for Wave

Rhyme of the week: 1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a Fish alive



Just a reminder …

Tuesday is our forest school session and library book day

Wednesday is PE day (comfortable clothes)


Have a lovely weekend!
