Our focus book for this term is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. As part of our hook for the book, the children ‘discovered’ some caterpillar eggs left in our classroom (real silkworm eggs).
We have been watching them closely, and just as this goes to print, the eggs have begun to hatch. We are now parenting baby silkworms! Baby silkworms eat only mulberry leaves and plenty of them as they grow.
In addition to this we have also started using the BeeBots. These are robots that help us learn some basic coding skills. Luckily, we don’t need to feed these little guys too!
