News - We have class pets!

 We have enjoyed observing our class caterpillars over the last two weeks, watching them grow bigger and bigger and are very excited to observe them making their cocoons!

We have also read the story of 'The Hungry Caterpillar' and enjoyed retelling the story. We have had lots of fun enjoying our Caterpillar café and making our own paper chain hungry caterpillars.

We have found out about the life cycle of a butterfly and can't wait to see our own caterpillars emerge from their cocoons soon! 


Thursday afternoon Art

We love our art on a Thursday afternoon and have looked at the artwork by Eric Carle author of The Hungry Caterpillar. We created collages using crayons and washing over with watercolour paint. We then cut the coloured paper into different shapes to create our own minibeasts in the style of Eric Carle's animals.
