Today you need to watch the PowerPoint that I put on and practise all the sounds. Continue to use the set 2 stretchy sounds booklet. This week we are concentrating only on the ow sound. In the booklet work through pages 12-13.

Literacy

Think about the things you would eat if you were a very hungry caterpillar. Tell your adult the things that you might choose, are they healthy or unhealthy foods that you have chosen. Complete your worksheet, If I was a very hungry caterpillar I would eat… You need to colour the caterpillar in the colours used by Eric Carle, write your sentence and then below you need to draw a picture of the food that you have chosen to eat.

Making Caterpillar Fruit Kebabs

Recap the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and explain to the children that they are going to make some caterpillar fruit kebabs!

Introduce the different fruits that you have provided. Can the children name the fruit? Have they seen one before? Give the children the opportunity to talk about what they look and feel like.

Talk to the children about how fruit is a healthy type of food – can they think of any other healthy foods? Can they think of any types of food that isn’t very healthy? Can they explain why? Show the children a completed caterpillar fruit kebab for inspiration, then encourage them  to make their own. Support the children to put the fruit onto the skewers if needed. Encourage the children to give reasons for their choices as they make their kebabs, for  example, ask ‘Why have you chosen that fruit?’ or ‘What could you use for this part of your caterpillar?’ After they have completed their kebab, encourage the children to take photos of their creations. They can now eat their kebab! As they eat, encourage the children to describe the tastes as much as possible, and to say if they like the taste or not.

 

Foods the caterpillar ate.

If you don't have fruit in the house you could look at the worksheet below which shows the different foods that the very hungry caterpillar ate. You need to sort the foods into different areas, healthy, unhealthy or a bit of both.
