This week, we have been learning about the butterfly life cycle. We are very excited to have our own caterpillars to watch the life cycle happen before our very eyes. This has led to us reading the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle. We ordered the story and talked about what happened at the beginning, middle and end. We retold the story using actions and then we drew our own story maps. Once we completed our story maps, we enjoyed being story tellers and using our pictures to help us tell the story. The Acorns used lots of fantastic story vocabulary!
This week, we had a go at practising our sewing skills. We thread the wool through the eye of the needle (a bit tricky but we used lots of stickability) and then carefully thread the wool through the holes around the leaf. We pretended the wool was the hungry caterpillar nibbling through the holes in the leaf!
Our new question for this half term is ‘How can we care for our wonderful world?’ We have previously learnt about how Christians believe God created the world. Today, we read the story ‘Wonderful World’ by Nick Butterworth. We talked about what the word ‘wonderful’ means and were amazed by all the interesting things in the book that makes our world- particularly the funny named animals. We decided to go for a walk around our school grounds to look out for some things that make us think ‘I wonder….’. We each took pictures on the ipads to show what we found.
