Our new friends the stick insects

Our new friends the caterpillars

This week we have been thinking about the lifecycle of a caterpillar. We have been reading the Very Hungry Caterpillar and discussing the journey that he went on and how our new  caterpillars may develop over time.
We have used various shapes of pasta to recreate the caterpillar lifecycle, beginning with an egg, followed by a caterpillar, a cocoon and finally a butterfly.The children used pens to colour the pasta shapes before sticking them into paper in a circular sequence to show how the lifecycle continues after the butterfly hatches.
