The children have been learning about caterpillars, so today we went to the woods for our Forest School session to look for caterpillars. Unfortunately we were unable to find any, but we did find plenty of green slugs and little brown woodlice.
The children also had to make their own caterpillar using green play dough and lots of natural materials. We even had some caterpillars that then turned into butterflies.
The children enjoyed rolling the dough into little balls, spreading the dough out to make flat caterpillars and adding leaves, twigs and grass to decorate their creations. Take a look at our caterpillars.
