The very hungry caterpillar

Over the past two weeks we have been focusing on the very hungry caterpillar.

We had our very own arrival of caterpillars and we were given the opportunity to observe and watch them grow and make the change into beautiful butterflies.

The children have been exploring a range of activities which have included leaf threading, butterfly printing, making our own cocoons and caterpillars from play dough.

At the end of the week we re-read the story of the hungry caterpillar and then released our own butterflies into the garden, which the children really enjoyed watching.
