Our caterpillars have disappeared!! Where have they gone?
If you look in our butterfly house you will see some very still, very strange looking things hanging from the side of the net. On Friday, we took these strange things out of their pot and hung them inside our special butterfly house. Now we have to check everyday to see what happens! We are making a caterpillar diary to show how our caterpillars have grown and changed since the day they arrived in school.
We had great fun on Thursday practising for our Sports Day. We need to have lots of healthy food and good sleeps so we can run our very best next Wednesday.
We love our Very Hungry Caterpillar project books, they are looking very good. We have made a 'life cycle wheel' this week to show how the butterfly begins its life from an egg . Next week we will be learning about symmetry and making our very own 'hand print' butterfly. We will draw around our hands straight into our project books and then make a pattern on each side! We will be learning about half of shapes too!
We had great fun on Friday, we all dressed up and donated sweets ready for our Wild West Summer Fair. We did our very best colouring that afternoon too!
Next week we will be talking about our favourite fruit and planning our Very Hungry Caterpillar picnic.
It's all so very exciting in Base 1!
