The theme this term is flight. The children have been participating in planning and discussing what they already know about flight and what they want to find out. To start the topic the children have decided they would like to learn about butterflies. To provide authentic learning experiences for the children we have caterpillars in class, the children are enjoying looking after them and observing how they change day to day. We are really excited to see them turn into butterflies.
We have been using the book 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle this week to help us with our understanding of butterflies...
Butterflies (we have named them Dash, Stripes and Bob)
