The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Developing Recall and Writing Skills

The Very Hungry Caterpillar ate lots of food – he was very full!

Can you remember the names of the food he ate?

Can you draw the food he ate?

To challenge yourselves, have a go at writing the initial sound for the food items you have drawn.


Can you continue the colourful patterns?

Remember, a pattern is a sequence that repeats itself – “red, green, red, green…”


Let's Count

Count the number of circles on each caterpillar.

Can you say the total number of circles?

Can you write the number?


1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
