The Hungry Caterpillars have enjoyed learning simple, rhyming poems by using the ‘Poetry Basket’ website on our interactive whiteboard.

The Poetry Basket consists of videos containing poems with actions for children aged 3 to 6. Performed by Trisha Lee, these poems include many lesser-known children’s rhymes from anonymous authors. As we watched the videos we enjoyed copying and reciting the poetry at carpet time and throughout the day. Some brave, amazing Caterpillars have stood up at the front of the class to perform a poem all by themselves!

There is a ‘Poetry Basket’ book in our book area which the Hungry Caterpillars have looked through to find their favourite poem. This week we have been reciting poems about popcorn, falling apples and a wise old owl!
