If you are unable to come to school due to COVID 19 please complete some of these activities and email work to your child’s class teacher.
Can you write a similar story about a ‘very hungry’ animal? What happens to it?
Retell the story from the point of view of the caterpillar. Why was it so hungry? How did it feel after eating so much?
Can you use alliteration to describe some of the food that are eaten? (e.g. lovely lollipops, scrumptious strawberries).
Read the story and try to retell it to a friend. Can you remember all of the food that was eaten, in the correct order?
Use Venn / Carroll diagrams to sort the foods that the caterpillar eats.
Count the total number of foods that were eaten by the caterpillar. How many of these were fruit / vegetable / contained meat etc?
Sort the foods that the caterpillar eats, in different ways. Which ones are healthy / unhealthy? Which are processed / unprocessed?
Think of a healthy / unhealthy meal for another hungry caterpillar.
Find out about the life cycles of caterpillars / butterflies. Find out about the life cycles of other animals.
Learn about metamorphosis. Find out about other animals who undergo metamorphosis.
Create a collage of a big, fat caterpillar!
Create another collage showing the beautiful butterfly.
Look at photographs of butterflies and paint your own. You could try folding a piece of paper in half and painting one half of a butterfly on one side. Then fold the paper over, press it down and open it out to reveal the full butterfly.
Writing your child’s name using a variety of resources/equipment – chalk/pens and paper/shaving foam/playdough/iPads/paint/water and paintbrushes outside/sand/pasta etc.
Support and encourage your child with their ‘pincer grip’ of holding the pencil/pen when writing/forming the letters.
Letters and Sounds – please use the following website to find letter and sounds activities, resources and sets of ‘sounds’ and ‘words’ you can use at home. We are currently working at ‘Phase 2 Sounds’ but please feel free to work on ‘Phase 1’ too.
Jolly Phonics – listen to the following link on youtube to sing along to the letter sounds. They are in a different order to the ‘Letters and Sounds’ sounds but please do not worry about this, as the encouragement to sing and recognise the letters sounds is the important aspect.
‘I spy letters’ game – can you find objects around the house that begin with different letters? e.g. s = smelly sock, a = apple, t = torch ect.
Handwriting Practise – We are using the cursive handwriting in school – find formation sheets on Twinkl or look at the pack sent out to you at the end of Summer Term.
Number formation practise
Count objects around the house
Object hunt – how many apples can you find?
Addition – can you add objects together to find out how many altogether?
