The Very Hungry Caterpillar

This term in Rainbow Class we are learning about 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We made some caterpillar pictures using hand prints. We are learning about doubling before we start to learn the 2 x table. We thought about the life cycle of a caterpillar and made some sensory pictures to show it. We have continued to use Colourful Semantics to help us to learn new vocaubilary linked to the story and write some sentences. We have been looking at the caterpillars in Class 2 and watching them get bigger and bigger!

We have had some great sessions at soft play. We are getting really good at climbing safely and this has helped us in school too. We get really excited when it is time to go on the mini bus for soft play. We are also really enjoying our music and movement sessions with Sarah from Dancing Tots. We are getting good at listening to instructions. We really like it when we pretend to be asleep! Our favourite time is when the bubbles come out!
