Using the word ‘caterpillar’, what other words can you make? Make a list of the words you can find – as a start the words ‘tap’ and ‘rail’ can be made!
Today, we are going to think about the setting. Where do you want your story to be set?
So far, both our stories have been set outside on a leaf. Where will your story be set? What will it look like? What will it sound like? Will it have a smell?
Can you draw a picture of your setting and label it?
Today, some caterpillars are having a party and we are thinking about finding one less.
Can you help organise the food for the caterpillar party by collecting some leaves for them to eat.
Using your leaves can you find the answers to these one less challenges?
You can use your number line to help you find one more. Remember which way we go to find one less.
Kate caterpillar has 7 leaves and she eats 1. What is one less than 7?
7 – 1 =
Collin caterpillar has 4 leaves and he eats 1. What is one less than 4?
4 – 1 =
Chris caterpillar has 12 leaves and he eats 1. What is one less than 12?
12 – 1 =
Clare caterpillar has 15 leaves and she eats 1. What is one less than 15?

Challenge: can you think of your own one less problem?
After you have shared a story today, can you retell it to someone else in your house? You could even tell it to your favourite teddy.
