Spread Your Wings Lesson

Moving to a new year group can be both an exciting and worrying time.


Look at the story below about The Cautious Caterpillar.

Encourage your child to talk about how the caterpillar feels. What was Cody worried about? How did she overcome her worries? How did she feel by the end of the story?

Talk about how she went from being worried/cautious, about changing into a butterfly, to feeling brave and excited.

Encourage your child to say how they are feeling about changing class. Are they excited? Worried? What are they looking forward to doing in Year 1?

Encourage them to share their thoughts and feelings and discuss ways of overcoming any worries they may have.

Use the sheet below to write about your feelings.
