The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Friday 21 April 2023

Children returned to Nursery brilliantly this week and settled in happily. We heard all about your Easter holiday trips and visits from the Easter Bunny.

This week, we read the very popular story by Eric Carle, called ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and started to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly. We’re hoping to have some tiny, wriggling guests in Nursery very soon. Watch this space!

In the Sunshine room, you may have noticed that we have a new cafe role play area. It was a hive of activity last week, with children busy taking orders and serving food to the hungry customers.


Children showed an interest in looking for creepy crawlies outside. We found lots of creatures hiding under logs including wood lice, slugs and some very long worms. We’ll continue this interest in worms next week and learn all about wriggly worms!
