Caterpillars Afternoons Helen and Stacey

Welcome to Caterpillars PM .

We are the practitioners which will provide your child with fun and exciting activities throughout their time in Caterpillars.  All the children will be involved in a wide range of activities accessing all the areas of provision inside and outside the classroom.  Throughout the year the children will join in with whole school events including Children In Need, Arts Week and World Book Week.  They will participate in National Nursery Rhyme Week in November and of course have loads of fun leading up to Christmas, ending with a class party and a visit from Santa.  Every week the children have the opportunity to go into school to use the Hall, Studio and Library.  They take part in music and movement, obstacle courses and PE style activities.  The children enjoy visiting the chickens and running around Space 4 Sport.   Every half term has a theme and the stories they read and activities completed are linked to the theme.  The children find out about Chinese New Year and look at life cycles of animals in the Spring.  They explore the seasons using their senses and first hand experiences.  In the Summer the children look closely at plants and flowers.  They grow their own sunflowers and plant flowers to brighten up the outdoor space.  They think about holidays and the beach, finishing the year with a spectacular Summer party.
