Pre-Nursery 2 children have a new pet – Colin the caterpillar! The children all sat together and were introduced to the caterpillar. They chose the name Colin. They talked about how he changes into a butterfly and they have been using ´The Very Hungry Caterpillar´ story, to aid their learning.
The children have held Colin and talked about how he felt and how he tickled as he walked along their arms.
He lives in an insect friendly container in the classroom on a low cupboard for the children to observe and discuss his behaviour….they are all waiting in anticipation for Colin to create his cocoon!
