Today we heard the story of a “Very Hungry Caterpillar”. What did he eat on Monday?, How many pears did he eat on Tuesday?. The very hungry caterpillar ate every day and then became a beautiful butterfly.
Now it´s time to draw our friend the Caterpillar. It was so fun to do it with balloons.
A Good Read
There’s nothing better than spending time with your nose in a book in the company of good friends, especially when you’re beginning to understand how to read!
We feel that listening to stories is so important for children as it enhances listening skills, improves vocabulary and encourages them to use their imagination.
This is why we were so happy this week when two special little girls from Primary asked if they could come down to read the little ones a story.
They chose a book they felt would be beneficial to them and relate to what they are working on. The book they chose was, “The time it took Tom”, and the reason they picked this book is because it consisted of colours and counting.
It´s only our first week back and it is already proving to be a great term. The children are ready and eager to learn.
Take a look at some of the things we´ve been doing…
