The story for this week is
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Listen to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar using the video attached or you can read the story if you have the book at home. Talk about the pictures and look for words you know as you read it. What’s your favourite part of the story? Can you name some of the food the hungry caterpillar ate ? Can you remember what the hungry caterpillar ate on the different days?
Draw the different food the hungry caterpillar ate each day. Have a go at labelling the food if you can.
