The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The children in Foundation Stage love minibeasts! They are always looking for them.

The children have decided which mini beast they would like to find out more about. The children had a vote:

The winning minibeast was…The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

We started our minibeast adventure about The Very Hungry Caterpillar by trying to work out who had been eating Miss Barber’s lunch one day. The children worked out it must have been the Very Hungry Caterpillar and the children enjoyed listening and learning the story using a story sack.

The children used the story to learn about the life cycle of a caterpillar.

The children had a very special delivery in the post; 5 tiny caterpillars. The children are enjoying watching them eat their food and grow bigger and bigger.

In one of our Forest School sessions on a Wednesday afternoon the children found leaves that the Hungry Caterpillar had been eating. We practiced our fine motor threading skills with these leaves.

We will have to wait and see what happens next to our caterpillars in the classroom.
