This week we are learning about the very hungry caterpillar.


Can you listen to the story with your grown up?

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Animated Film

In the internationally acclaimed The Very Hungry Caterpillar, a tiny caterpillar eats and eats...and eats his way through the week. Taken from The Very Hungry ...

Can you tell your grown up your favourite part of the story?

Where did the caterpillar come from?

Why was he hungry?

What food did he eat?

How many strawberries did the caterpillar eat?


Listen to the story again to see if you are right!


Here are some of the foods the caterpillar eats.

1) Can you tell a grown up what they are?

2) What sound do they begin with? (for example salami begins with 'ssssss' and cupcake begins with 'c')

3) Does any of the food begin with the same letter that is in your name?

4) Which food do you like best on the picture?

5) With a grown-up make a list of the food the caterpillar eats. Remember to draw the pictures carefully. Have a go at copying some of the words if you like. You could take a picture of it and send a picture to our Nursery email address.

Can you make a caterpillar?

You could:

  • use bits of old packaging to stick onto your caterpillar to make a collage.
  • use bottle lids.
  • draw it by yourself using a good pencil grip (remember how we show you).
  • make it a short, long, fat or thin caterpillar.
