Hello, I have recently had an interview for an nursery and have managed to get the 2nd stage. For this I have been asked to complete a 30 minute activity, for children aged 3-5 years old and was suggested a story. I have narrowed it down to a choice of two books and these are reading SHHH by Sally Grindley, or The very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. For shhh I was going to start by practising the word shhh with the children and then reading the story, after this I would get the children to sequence the story by asking questions such as: What did we see first? The main ideas for Caterpillar was to read the story and also use sequencing, counting and recount the fruit and doing some colouring in of a caterpillar or butterfly etc. The main issue is i would rather do shhh as it is less widely done however I am struggling to find objects for a story sack and other activities to fill up the 30 minutes. Additionally I feel I could plan for the educational value more with hungry caterpillar. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on what the other activites could be with shhh? Or should I go with the hungry caterpillar? Thanks in advance.
