Look at all of your amazing work and exploring!
We also have an extra treat this week....Grace has written a story for us.
Well done little pickles!
Hello my little jumping bugs! How are you?
This week we are carrying on with bugs and creepy crawlies.
I hope you enjoy it and can't wait to hear about and see what you have found out!
Can you remember the name of the author (someone who writes books)
of The Very Hungry Caterpillar?
That's right...Eric Carle.
Here are some more stories written by Eric Carle.
- Choose one of them to make a story map for (See resources in Summer week 2 for examples)

Listen to and then listen and watch the music videos below.
- Talk about what you can hear and see.
- Which creature do you think it could be about?

- Who is the person at the front without an instrument? Why are they there?
- Is it fast or slow? Loud or soft? Angry or gentle? Busy or calm?
