Home Learning Day 1





 In school we have read the story of the hungry caterpillar.  Watch the video.


Talk to your adult about what happens in the story:

What happened to the Caterpillar?

Which foods did he eat?

What happens to the caterpillar at the end?



Can you draw a picture or paint a picture of the butterfly?

In school we have been practising writing lists. Write a list of all of the colours that you have used to draw/paint your caterpillar. Use your sound mat to help you spell the words.  


If you have not been in school and would like to find out more about the life cycle of a butterfly you can read this story on espresso:

Home Learning Day 2




In class we have been thinking about different insects. At home go out on a nature walk. What animals and insects can you see?

When you get back home, make a list of the animals and insects that you saw. You could draw a picture of each insect/ animal and then use your sound mat to help you write the name of each insect/animal.



Today we are continuing to practise taking away.
