The last week of term and continuing on from our spring themes we looked into Eric Carle’s wonderful book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. For a lot of our lower preschool children this seems to be one of their favourite books as well as Freya having caterpillar’s at home, we thought this would be a brilliant theme to bring to life.
The children created some wonderful craft work. They learnt about the life cycle of a caterpillar, they created a selection of wonderful caterpillar paintings, their own version of a butterfly as well as a wonderful butterfly picture made from butterfly pasta.
The children also found a caterpillar out at Forest school. This really brought home how much they had taken in on this weeks theme as it was the children that found the caterpillar not us!
Freya’s Nanny, Anne, came in for story time and read two wonderful books to the children which they loved. She was also very kind and lent us the caterpillars for the day so all the children could have a good look at what caterpillars looked like in really life.
In PE we are getting ready for sports day and practising lots of our running, jumping and balancing skills. It’s so nice to have some wonderful weather.
Lots of fun was also had this week as that’s what nursery is all about.
