The hungry cockroach

This idea has everything I love; storytelling, different forms of student production, encouraging imagination, and it’s simple.

Just get three pieces of paper, overlap each of them about a couple of inches and then fold, hey presto a groovy book shape.


This week our CM2 class used it to produce their own version of the hungry caterpillar. Each story contained a week of various animals eating various things, one pupil had the great idea of adding holes to his “food” with a hole punch. Each day ended with the refrain “but he was still hungry”, and each story had it’s own ending.

Sadly the cockroach was stood on.
