Greenfinch Class - Friday 8th January
How did you get on with your activities yesterday?
Did you find lots of objects beginning with ‘l’?
What shapes did you find that look like squares and rectangles?
Next week we will begin our exciting new topic, ‘Weather Experts’ and our books for this are the lovely ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’ stories. Information about our new topic will be emailed home today for your parents to share with you.
Today we are going to be doing some wonderful activities based around the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.
As we are unable to change reading books at school at the moment, please choose an e-reading book from Oxford Owl. Try to read one or two books a week, and ask a grown up to write in your reading diary. You can choose books that are the same level that you are on now.

We have been learning about one more. Watch the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. He eats one more piece of food each day between Monday and Friday. Can you recognise the pattern of one more in this story?
1) If you can, print off these pictures and order the story. Can you remember what the Hungry Caterpillar ate on each day?
2) You could also try this sorting activity. Practice your cutting skills or ask a grown up to help you. Cut out the food and put it on the right day of the week.
3) Or set up a tea party with your teddy bears and give each teddy bear one more piece of food than the teddy bear before them! How many pieces of food does each teddy bear have?
Expressive Arts & Design
Do you know what caterpillars turn into? Beautiful butterflies! What facts do you know about caterpillars and butterflies?
Watch this video to find out more about butterflies:
Use the template below to make a symmetrical patterned butterfly – this is a pattern that is the same on both sides – it is a mirror image of the other side.
- Carefully paint one side/half of the butterfly with a pattern and fold the other blank side over onto the painted side.
- Press down carefully and then lift up to see the beautiful symmetrical pattern that you have made.
- Or you could use colouring pencils or felt tips to draw a pattern on one side of your butterfly. Look carefully at your pattern and try to draw a matching pattern on the other half of your butterfly.
Physical Development: Health & Self-care
The Very Hungry Caterpillar eats some healthy and unhealthy foods. Can you tell a grown up which ones are healthy and which ones are unhealthy?
You could also make this fun caterpillar snack using cucumber and tomato!
