The Hungry Caterpillar Fruit Salad!


Recently the children have loved taking part in lots of fun activities based on all of our favourite stories to celebrate world book day. This was one of their favourites, making a fruit salad for the hungry caterpillar!
This activity allowed for so many learning opportunities to naturally flow for the children. We talked about hygiene as we washed our hands before starting and the importance of healthy eating. We listened to the story again and read out instructions on how to make the salad. We counted out the different fruit looking back at the book to help, 1 apple, 2 pears, 3 plums etc.
We talked about how to prepare the different fruit, which ones we would need to chop or peel and the children practiced these skills independently. They were so proud of themselves and even helped eachother if it was needed. They couldn’t wait to taste our fruit salad and thought it was absolutely delicious!
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
