We started with the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and made our own books. We used these to retell the story.
'The caterpillar ate five oranges.' - Jeremiah
'The caterpillar ate two pears. He had a tummy ache.' - Mehek
We found out about how butterflies are born, making lifecycle charts and writing about them - come and have a look at our display in Room 3!
The butterfly got made from the caterpillar. The egg got turned into the caterpillar. - Haze
The butterfly flies to the sky and it lays eggs. - Ember
The caterpillar changes. She turned into a butterfly. - Levi C
The caterpillar lays an egg on the leaf and a caterpillar comes out. The caterpillar is hungry and she eats lots of food. - Zoe
The caterpillar makes a chrysalis and it nibbles a hole in it. A beautiful butterfly comes out. - Alaynah
The caterpillar lays an egg on the leaf and a caterpillar comes out. The caterpillar eats a lot of food and it makes a chrysalis. Then the caterpillar turns into a butterfly. Amelia
We finished the week making beautiful 'stained glass' butterflies. We think they look amazing on the windows. Come and have a look - be prepared to be 'blown away'! :)
On another note...Have you had a look at some of the links to the side of this blog. More have been added this week from Harry Kindergarten...songs on a range of things to help your child's learning. Why not have a peek and fill your house with song?!
