Literacy Activities

Describe the fruit/ food that the caterpillar eats in the story and get someone to guess which fruit/ food you are describing. Then ask someone to describe to you so that you can have a turn at guessing. Make sure you are listening carefully to the clues. Take it in turns to describe (speak) and guess (listen).


Have a go a writing sentences for each day of the week. E.g. On Sunday the caterpillar went to look for food. On Monday he ate … .

Religious Education

This week our aim is to know that we call the Church the family of God and that we can all belong to this family. Share the PowerPoint and the story of how the church began. And explain that the people make the church.


Colour in the outline of the church. Draw or print out and stick some people from the church family. Can you write some words that describe what we do in Church?

Using construction (lego) or junk modelling, build a model of a Church.

Art and Design (over two weeks)

Design a butterfly. Use print painting to create a symmetric pattern for your butterfly.

Junk modelling- make your own butterfly or caterpillar.

Paint a caterpillar with a repeating pattern for his body.

Computing (over two weeks)
