Over the half term, the butterflies emerged. We enjoyed observing the butterflies and after a few days, we let them go in our nature reserve. It was a lovely experience and all of the children enjoyed watching them grow and change.
Look at the size of our caterpillars! WOW! We have been observing them over the past 13 days and we cannot believe how much they have changed. We are excited to watch them change into cocoons and then into butterflies.

Today we have a very exciting parcel delivered to the school. It was a box of... caterpillars!
We are going to observe how they grow and change over the coming weeks. We were all very excited! We spoke about the life cycle of a butterfly and the children have drawn some beautiful pictures to demonstrate their understanding of this.
