The Very hungry caterpillar story trail-Firs

21st April 2021

What a lovely start to the new term for Firs. This morning we read the hungry caterpillar out in the log circle and then went on a  hunt, looking for different pictures from the story. The children matched the pictures they found to their baseboard.
We made an enormous caterpillar on the ground using planks of wood, tyres, and crates. We were very impressed with our long caterpillar and thought he looked a little hungry so fed him some soil and leaves!
We made small caterpillars from wood slices and conkers, and also threaded Cheerios onto pipe cleaners to make more wriggling caterpillars
We enjoyed all sorts of different activities around the woods including looking at and exploring the mini beast table, some of us hunting for and finding a variety of creatures.
