Term 2

Happy New Year from Caterpillars

Our topic this term asks the question

“Which is the biggest dinosaur?"

We will enjoy lots of imaginative play, moving on all fours, on two legs, flapping wings and ROARING like dinosaurs. We will become explorers, searching for dinosaur eggs and digging for bones. There will be lots of pre-historic dinosaur crafts and activities to enjoy too. Nursery and Caterpillars will also be inviting our families to get involved with a special dinosaur Parent event.
