This morning at mat time the children took part in telling the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. They all had a piece of the story made from felt and when it was their turn they took it up the front and fed it to the caterpillar and the caterpillar grew bigger and bigger.
When he became huge he built himself a cocoon and stayed inside for more than two weeks, then he pushed his way out and he was a beautiful butterfly!!
The children really enjoy taking part in this story, they feel their contribution to the story is valued and they gain a sense of belonging.
