We have butterflies

We have butterflies!!!

Over the last few weeks Reception have taken care of baby caterpillars and learnt all about the life cycle of the butterfly.

We watched the whole cycle happen before our eyes. Our five caterpillar eggs, became very hungry caterpillars, then chrysalis, and finally five beautiful `painted lady` butterflies.

We fed our butterflies fruit, sugared water and flowers and when they were strong enough we decided to set them free.

We chose the back of our school field and decided that it was the most suitable environment for our butterflies.

What a beautiful afternoon we had releasing them into the wild.

Goodbye butterflies we will miss you!
