The children have been learning about the importance of healthy eating and exercise and the positive effects these have on our body.
They have been cutting out pictures of different fruits and vegetables and sticking them onto their paper plates, this was extended by making hungry caterpillars using pipe cleaners.
The children then found a caterpillar in the garden, we have made the caterpillar a special butterfly garden which will allow us to observe its life cycle.
