The very hungry French caterpillar
NURSERY school children ate all the pommes and fraises they liked when they were treated to a French fruit tasting recently.
Pupils at The Little Language Academy, Chalfont St Peter, have been learning the French version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, called La Chenille Quie Fait Des Trous.
The name directly translates to The Caterpillar Who Made Holes, and the youngsters were tasked with learning the different names of all foods that feature in the book.
Debbie Lomax, owner of the academy, said: “The Very Hungry Caterpillar is an excellent topic to teach in French.
“It covers all kinds of things such as days of the week, fruit and other food names, as well as being a really fun story. We have been singing songs about caterpillars and butterflies, and our olderlder children have even learnt the butterfly life cycle in French.”
