Ms Huntington: July 2015
We are very proud of the fact that we have grown and cared for our caterpillars over the past five weeks. Tuesday was a very special day for us. We let our butterflies fly away to find their own food. They flew out of their butterfly house and off into the pond area to find flowers and nettles. What a fantastic experience for everyone in Base 1.
We decided that we would have a Very Hungry Caterpillar picnic to celebrate. We took the story outside and as we read the story we paused and ate some of the food that the caterpillar ate. Lots of children enjoyed the Swiss cheese, the strawberries and of course the cupcakes! Then we all flew around the field like a butterfly!
We had a great day with our new teacher on Wednesday, all the children said they were excited and liked Miss Davies. We are all very grown up and ready to move up to Base 2.
We had a lovely end to the week, our reading buddies in Base 5 came and we enjoyed sharing stories with them in the sunshine. Some of us are now so good at reading that we can read a story to our buddies!
We love our Very Hungry Caterpillar learning journals. We have just got the last page to finish, we are going to write a letter to Eric Carle to say what we like about his story. Then to finish, we can get messy with our finger paints and make the front covers with lots of spots, just like in the real story book.
Still lots more fun things to do!! Another exciting week ahead!

A donation however big or small will, I'm sure, be gratefully...
