Topic – Days of the week


  • Read/ Watch the Hungry caterpillar (link to story YouTube video)

You can also try harder words ( see word mat below)

  • Time yourself - how many words can you remember and write in 3/5 minutes?


  • Sing and perform the days of the week song
  • Use the pack posted below to help you learn the sequence of the days of the week (you don’t have to print the resources – they’re for ideas)
  • Ask someone to quiz you on the days in order, what day was yesterday? What day is it tomorrow.?
  • List 5 things that you take you a long time and 5 things that you can do quickly.
  • Addition – see below
  • Here are some other maths ideas based o the Hungry Caterpillar

Science/ Art/DT

  •  Paint/draw /make a hungry caterpillar/and or a butterfly
  • Investigate how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly
  • Symmetrical butterflies – fold paper in half, paint half a butterfly on one side and then fold and press down. The centre must be along the fold. Use this game to help you understand symmetry.




  • Ask someone to time you throwing a ball in the air 10 times/ jumping 10 times/ brushing your teeth/ getting dressed/ writing your name and surname etc.
