This week we were joined in class by some new pets … some very hungry caterpillars!
The children have been fascinated to study them with magnifying glasses and we have been learning about the life cycle of a caterpillar, studying how it goes from an egg, to a hungry caterpillar, to a cocoon (chrysalis) and transforms into a butterfly.
Its also a good opportunity to share Miss Tillsley’s favourite book with everyone – The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
We will keep you updated and post pictures when the caterpillars transform into butterflies – oh! and our word of the week is ….. transform!
