Wiggle in the Woods: School dresses up as Hungry Caterpillar to raise money for charity

The-start-of-the-Hungry-Caterp

A north Norfolk school has been getting its wiggle on to raise money for charity.

Antingham and Southrepps Primary School used their close connection with their local woodland to take part in a Giant Wiggle Though The Woods to raise money for Action for Children.

With a lot of time, patience and support from their art teacher, the whole school dressed up as Eric Carle's Hungry Caterpillar to wiggle, waddle and walk around the woods opposite the school.

Parents, carers and friends were invited to join the wiggle and listen to the children tell the famous story along the way.

At the end of the walk the children planted six fruit trees in the school orchard, donated by Orchards for Trees, which will be able to feed all the hungry caterpillars after future wiggles.
