Our preschool children at Treetops Day Nursery Cheltenham have been enjoying listening to ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ story.
Through engaging with the story they have been learning about the days of the week, practising their counting skills and learning about healthy eating.
They have enjoyed tasting all the foods that the caterpillar eats and deciding which they all like best. The overall favourite is the strawberry!
The children have also acted out parts of the story, pretending to be a cocoon, caterpillar and then flying like a butterfly.
Today they have all contributed to a story map, drawing the characters in the story, sequencing the life cycle of a butterfly and learning new words.
All the children have had great fun with this story and are able to recall key parts joining in the storytelling.
