The children from Caterpillar class were given some caterpillars!
They have been watching them really closely over the last month and have seen them change into chrysalises and then hatch into butterflies. They have been learning about the life cycle of caterpillars and butterflies and have really enjoyed seeing this happening in front of them.
They enjoyed feeding the caterpillars with lettuce and tomatoes and got very excited as they saw the caterpillars growing bigger and bigger, before spinning a cocoon and then developing into butterflies.
On Wednesday this week they released 12 beautiful tortoiseshell butterflies into the wild.
Well done Caterpillar Class!
