The children were so excited by the arrival of our caterpillars last month. They used the magifying glasses to look at them closely and used non-fiction books to learn new facts and information about caterpillars. They have closely observed them getting bigger and bigger as they ate more and more each day. The children were amazed to see them make their own chrysalis and found it fascinating when they would twitch and turn in their cocoons.

The children couldn't have been more excited when the butterflies emerged from their chrysalides. They again observed the butterflies closely and commented on the colours and patterns of their wings. We researched the type of butterflies we had and learnt that they were called 'red admiral' butterflies. As the weather was wet, the children collected flowers and fruit which we dropped sugar water onto for the butterflies to feed on while we waited for a dry day to release them. 

The sun came out and we eagerly grabbed our opportunity to free our beautiful butterflies! The children were very understanding that whilst it had been lovely having the butterflies in the class, it was time to set them go to live a happy, free life in amongst the nature where they would be able to get everything they needed to survive.

Some of the butterflies even stuck around and the children were very happy to see them enjoying our lovely nature spots at school.
