We have had a very busy couple of weeks. With the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, we created a food diary, a French dictionary using key words and lots of caterpillar art! 
Last week was all about animals and mini-beasts! We designed our own animals all very interesting and recreated them using nature. We also painted ladybird rocks, wanted posters and went on a minibeast hunt.
