Hungry Caterpillar

Rosen Class had very special visitors arrive this week ~ real caterpillars! We will be watching them grow over the next few weeks, observing changes and recording what we find out. We are really excited to see what happens! We have also been ordering days of the week, using The Hungry Caterpillar story to help us.

The Hungry Caterpillar

This week, Rosen class have been reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We sequenced parts of the story, made our own Caterpillar paintings, used play dough to show parts of a Caterpillar and lots more! We are really enjoying reading this story.

Pancake Day

On Shrove Tuesday we tasted pancakes with different toppings. Our favourite was chocolate drops!

Garden Play

We have also been having fun in the garden in spite of the wet weather. We have been making mud pies and building balance beams!


In Rosen Class we have been learning about volcanoes. We painted our own ones, made them in different ways and even exploded our own one!
