Welcome back to the Summer Term. What a sunny week we’ve had to start our Amazing Animals topic.
This week we have been learning about minibeasts. Our book of the week has been ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.
In Literacy we predicted what was going to happen at the end of the Very Hungry Caterpillar story. We also did some amazing writing about how we made our bug hotel during our Stunning Start. We looked at and discussed the differences between a fiction and a non-fiction book.
In Maths we have been learning about doubling. We have practised doubling by painting spots on one side of a butterfly and then folding the paper over to double the spots. We have counted spots on one wing of a ladybird and then drawn the same number of spots on the other wing to double it.
For our stunning start we worked together to build a bug hotel. We are hoping that we may have some guests staying in our hotel when we check next week.
We welcomed some very small caterpillars into the class. After reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ story we decided that the caterpillars will grow, make a cocoon and then turn into butterflies. We will watch them grow and when they are butterflies we will release them into the world.
