This half term we’ve been learning about The Very Hungry Caterpillar and also some of the other stories by Eric Carle.
The most exciting thing we did was have real life caterpillars in our classroom. It was fascinating watch them grow and eventually make their chrysalis (sometimes referred to as cocoons) and turn into butterflies.
We loved watching them and it generated all sorts of interesting conversations. This is just one of them….
We were sad to say goodbye to our butterflies but excited to see them fly and embark on their new adventures.
Earlier on in the half term we had a fruit tasting session where we tried all the fruits the Very Hungry Caterpillar ate. Some of us had to try some foods we’d never had before which was a bit scary but we found out most of it was yummy.
We did lots of different activities in class linked to the book and caterpillars and butterflies. Can you tell your grown up which was your favourite?
We got really good at telling the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Find the post about our storytelling to see when we told our story to our grown ups.
While we were learning all about the caterpillars and butterflies using The Very Hungry Caterpillar we also read lots of other books written and illustrated by Eric Carle in school and at the Library. We found out which the favourite book was of the whole of Onyx class.
