Hungry Caterpillar

November 10, 2014

The children in our over 3’s room have been following their interest in the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. They have talked about their favourite foods and made a pictogram showing which food is most popular.  Ice cream came top of the list! The children also enjoyed making a big brightly coloured caterpillar to decorate their bathroom and have decorated the foods which the caterpillar ate. They had great fun and also managed to squeeze in time to get dressed up for Halloween! Follow us on Twitter Hungry catapliar
