Nursery are continuing with ‘metamorphosis’ and Eric Carle’s artistic approach to illustrating his amazing stories, including the Hungry Caterpillar. The German born artist was famous for his use of collage and die cut pages and other original elements. Sadly, this week the author died at the age of 91.
The children had a go at their own display called ‘Lifecycle of a Butterfly’ echoing the famous story using the same method of artwork, and dedicated it to Eric Carle. Mrs Banks read his amazing stories to hundreds of children over my many years of teaching and has loved watching the children’s faces as the story unfolds.
