Caterpillars!

It has been another very exciting week in Class 1 as we have been learning about the Life cycle of a Butterfly.  We started by reading a new story called “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”, after reading this we then created our own story map to retell the story as a class.

We then completed some activities in our class all about The Very Hungry Caterpillar, in our Maths area we completed a task where we needed to add the correct amount of body segments to the caterpillars head.  We did this by recognising the number above its head and then used our finger dipped in paint to count out the right amount of segments.

In our reading area we used story spoons to order the story events, this also helped us to verbally retell the story to our friends.

We were also busy in our Art area where we recreated the hungry caterpillar using 3D shapes and printing them onto large pieces of paper in the shape of the caterpillar.

We have also been very lucky to have a special delivery of some real caterpillars! We are very excited to watch the caterpillars grown and turn into beautiful butterflies!
