The Very Hungry Caterpillar Class Assembly Script

(0)
My Reception children spent half a term learning about caterpillars and butterflies. We learned Makaton actions to the Very Hungry Caterpillar. We watched a makaton video on YouTube. My class wanted to use some of the actions for the minibeasts, and then chose their own actions for other parts of the story. We learned Makaton actions for minibeasts - Mr Tumble CBBC video on YouTube. We painted the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. We used this script which includes the songs that we used. We found all of the songs on YouTube and learned them during snack time. The class assembly lasted 10-15 minutes.

Year 1 - Theme of Superheroes. Read the story Supertato. DT project - design and make a Supertato. We used the TASC wheel to structure the project. Letter from the Evil Pea - I left ‘bad messages’ from the Evil Pea around the school. Whoever read these messages turned bad. My TAs were mixing up all of the toys, and sitting on the tables. The children were in shock at first! Then, someone decided to make posters that had good messages on them to turn everyone back good. We focused on what ‘good’ and ‘bad’ meant.
