Today’s suggested activities

Happy Wednesday Class 1! We’re half way through the week!

The rest of this week’s activities will be looking at caterpillars. Here is a story about a VERY hungry caterpillar:

When you’ve watched and listened to the story, can you discuss these questions with your mum or dad:

  • Where was the caterpillar egg?
  • What day did the caterpillar come out of the egg?
  • What was the first food he ate?
  • What did he eat 3 of?
  • What day did he eat 4 strawberries?
  • Can you remember some of the unhealthy foods he ate?
  • What day did he build his cocoon?
  • How long did he stay in his cocoon for?
  • What did he transform into at the end?

Today’s activity is all about food! The Very Hungry Caterpillar made some healthy and some not so healthy food choices. Do you know what types of foods are healthy and which foods are unhealthy if we eat too much of them?

Why not have a go at this food sorting activity to help you remember:

For your main task today, I’d like you to have a go at designing a healthy snack in the style of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. Here are some pictures for inspiration:

Have a look in your cupboards, fridge and freezer to see what foods you have, then get to designing your snack. Remember to sound out and write the ingredients you need, as best you can.

Once you have designed your snack, you will need to make it! This is a perfect opportunity for you to develop some cooking and physical development skills, whether that be through grating, chopping, slicing, peeling, cutting etc, so try to be as safe, but independent as possible. Don’t forget to send me a picture of your finished snack before you eat it!

Your next task is to sound out and write to tell me how you made your snack and then evaluate it. Rate your snack out of 5 stars for healthiness and tastiness!

I hope you enjoy getting creative!
