We started by thinking, thinking, thinking.

We came up with some powerful words. 

Look at what we created. . .

All the children wrote this story over a week of Writing lessons, with Mrs Croucher (our Student Teacher) leading our learning.

Lastly we created some beautiful rainbow butterflies which are flying across the windows in Class 21.

Hatching into Beautiful Butterflies in Class 21!

 Class 21 read the story "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and got inspired to write their own version of the story and create some growing hairy caterpillars and some amazingly beautiful butterflies. . .

We got some dirt with grass seeds in it, stockings, a bucket, and some plastic cups cut into a funnel.

Next we put the dirt into the stocking with the funnel and tied it off each section with a hair-tie to make three parts to our caterpillars.

Talk about great team-work!!

We added antennae and eyes to the head of our caterpillars.
Mrs Croucher and Ms Wild cut holes in the stockings for us to put them in.

Then Class 21 put their caterpillars on our cubbyholes so they could get sun to grow. 
Of course we watered them to make sure they would grow really hairy and green!!

Then we were inspired to create beautiful butterflies - just like the book.

The Very Hunger Caterpillar.

We read the book 'A Very Hungry Caterpillar' and took inspiration from this for our artwork. . .
