The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Nursery has been reading the ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle – which recently turned 50 years old! The children really love this story, which teaches them so much. It’s wonderful for learning the names of different foods, the days of the week, practicing counting and exploring the life cycle of a butterfly. The author is also one of Nursery’s favorites, our second favorite story being 10 Rubber Ducks!


As part of our learning we’ve done a range of different activities and have even got some live caterpillars in our classroom! We’re hoping that these will turn into Beautiful Butterflies before the half term break. Below you’ll find a snapshot of all the wonderful activities we’ve done so far.
