Summer 1 - Me and My World

Me and My World
The books we will explore through this topic are:
The Very Hungry Caterpillar 
The Gruffalo 
We're Going on a Bear Hunt
Over this half term, we have had real caterpillars in class. We watched them grow and change from caterpillars, to cocoons and now we are waiting for our butterflies! 
Mini Wonders: Very Hungry Caterpillar - CMON Golisano Children's Museum of  Naples
"We're going on a bear hunt, we're going to catch a big one! What a beautiful day...we're not scared!"
We made Gruffalo Crumble using fruit from our edible playground! 
We programmed the bee-bots to move around the story map of The Gruffalo.
We illustrated in the style of Eric Carle. First we manipulated paint and colour. Then we cut it up and created our own designs of patterns, shapes and objects. 
Eid Mubarak!
Lots of celebrated Eid recently. We uploaded pictures on Tapestry of our outfits and what we did on that special day. We then shared these with our friends in class who do not celebrate Eid so we all know we celebrate and believe in different things! 
We made a Gruffalo scarecrow to scare away the birds from our vegetable patch! 
We were crafty and created the Gruffalo's face!
We explored our garden and forest area by going on a minibeast hunt! We mostly found bees and woodlice. We then ensured our edible playground was growing nicely.
