This week we listened to the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’, which the children absolutely loved. There have been lots of activities around caterpillars and butterflies and we have learned about their life cycles. We had a special delivery of real tiny caterpillars on Monday afternoon and we have been watching how they are growing. They have already doubled in size!
We know that caterpillars like to eat fresh green leaves so we also planted some seeds to see if they will grow. We planted peas and beans. We found out what seeds need in order to grow and now just have to wait and see what happens. We planted some seeds in glass jars so that we can closely monitor what is happening to our seeds as they germinate.
