The youngsters were invited to dress up as bugs and wear hats they had made as they took part in a host of craft activities, completed an assault course and then toured their field to collect items eaten in the Very Hungry Caterpillar book.

They then celebrated with a picnic and watched the film in the hall during the morning.

The Giant Wiggle raised money for Action for Children.

Class one teacher Gemma Hanley said: “It’s a national event for the charity and we thought it would be a brilliant thing for our youngsters to do and something we could do for sponsorship so they could help raise money.

“The children have dressed up as all sorts of minibugs, so we’ve had lots of beetles, caterpillars, butterflies and spiders.

“It all relates to the Very Hungry Caterpillar and we’ve made bags with a picture of it inside, so they can put the things he eats in his tummy as they go around the field.”

The Play and Stay group meets each Wednesday from 9am to 10.30am, with new children welcome.
