The ladybirds explored the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar. They read the story throughout the week and got to know the story as a familiar story. Thee children took turns listening to the story being read and turning the pages. The children supported the team to make some props for the story, painting paper plates to create the caterpillar and cutting up the fruit from the story. The children helped Abi to read the story by each holding up parts of the props. The children took part in a tasting activity, trying each piece of fruit from the story including plums, oranges, pears, apples and strawberries just like the caterpillar did. It was a wonderful way to link a story to a sensory experience.
