Welcome to week two of your home learning. I am thinking about you all and I’m sending lots of love and happy thoughts your way. I hope you have been enjoying finding out what Terrance the Tiger and I have been getting up to!
It has been fantastic being able to message some of you in Reception through our Tapestry app. Keep writing to me and sending me your fabulous photos and I’ll continue to write back. It has been brilliant to see all the fun things you have been doing. It really does make my day to hear from you!
Don’t forget year ones, email email@example.com with your photos and your email will be forwarded on to me and I’ll get back to you.
This week’s theme is...
🐛The Very Hungry Caterpillar🦋
Keep checking back to see the different things I’m doing each day. Perhaps you could have a go at home?
Here are some more ideas;
Could you draw your own hungry caterpillar? What will your caterpillar want to eat? Can you turn it into a butterfly? Can you make your own butterfly wings and run around the garden?
Can you find any caterpillars in your garden? Are there any butterflies flying through?
What colours can you see on their wings? Where do they like to land?
Have you ever seen a butterfly tongue? Ask an adult to help you investigate!
How could you recreate one with paper?
I’ve had a go at making a caterpillar and a butterfly with some fruit and vegetables. Can you tell which ones I have used? I used a cocktail stick to help hold it altogether. Let me know if you have a go. Maybe you could make a butterfly pizza or a caterpillar shaped sandwich?!
Did you know that butterflies are symmetrical? Their wings are a mirror image of each other. Can you draw one butterfly wing and hold it up to a mirror and see it's mirror image? You will have made a full butterfly.
I have had fun painting a butterfly. Hope you like it!
Mrs B’s Story Time
The Crunching Munching Caterpillar.
Terrance somehow persuaded me to let him get behind the camera. he makes a few accidental appearances! See if you can spot him!
If the weather is nice in the next few days see if you can spot the different things that the caterpillar saw in the story. How many can you tick off the list? Can you write your own list? Can you add on the extra things that you find using your phonic knowledge? Perhaps you could keep a tally if you spot something more than once? Which object did you find the most/least of? Let me know, I'd love to see your results.
Green leaf, brown leaf, dandelion seed, feather, twittering birds, bumble bee, butterfly.
