There have been some very hungry caterpillars in preschool this week! We have used the story to look at healthy eating and exercise.

The morning children have been all been making healthy choices, categorising food and taking part in lots of exercise. They have enjoyed using the iPad to scan foods and see how much sugar is in them with the ‘NHS Sugar Smart App’. Why not take a look at the website yourself: find out food facts, recipes and activities. The fruit kebabs we made didn’t last long on the plates at snack time.

In our afternoon sessions we have also looked at this story and thought about the foods that we like to eat. The children have made some caterpillar necklaces to take home and played in our home corner shop with real vegetables.

Next week: we continue with our sugar app learning, look at letter formation ‘p’ and use our pizza oven in the home corner.
