The very hungry caterpillar


Introduce the story that they will be looking at this week. 

Has anybody read this book? What is it about?

What do caterpillars eat normally?

Where do they live?

We will be having some caterpillars to come and live in our classroom/ Miss Collier's house soon so that we can watch them grow into butterflies.

Watch video about how that happens.


How many of the foods can you remember that the hungry caterpillar ate? Using the sheet provided make me a list and remember don't copy from the book if you have it, try and sound them out.
