In nursery we have been doing a lot of activities around our Talk For Writing book ‘The
Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We looked closely at pictures of butterflies and then we used
paint to make our own butterflies. We carried out an investigation to find which material
was best for making a dry cocoon for the caterpillar. We found that the plastic was best,
then the fabric and that the tissue paper fell apart. We looked at pictures of food and
selected things we thought our caterpillars would like to eat and we made caterpillar
masks so we could pretend to be caterpillars ourselves.
