There's a tiny caterpillar, tiny caterpillar, tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wriggle wriggle'
'He will eat the leaf around him til he's full.....'
'A cocoon is what he's spinning for a home....'
'He will be a butterfly and fly away...'
This term we are thinking about Growing. We will be reading Jack and the Beanstalk, and sending home a bean for the children to grow their own beanstalk.
For their homework we would like the children to look after their beanstalk, and draw or write about any changes that happen to their bean. They can tell us how often they water it and where they have put the plant pot so that it gets lots of sunshine.
Our new theme is 'Once upon a time' We will be learning about different traditional tales.
