The very hun­gry French cater­pil­lar

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

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.”
