Term 1 Week 9 - Caterpillars and butterflies

This week we have been learning all about caterpillars and butterflies.
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?!
