From Caterpillar to Butterfly

In RL, we have been watching very closely as our caterpillars have munched and munched, grown and grown and spun their silk into a protective chrysalis around themselves.

On Friday, we were very excited to see the first beautiful ‘Painted Lady’ butterfly emerge from her chrysalis. This morning three more had joined her! The children named our butterflies Chrissy, Flutter, Poppy and Tinkerbell.

The butterflies enjoyed a healthy breakfast of flowers, fruit and water before we released them into our garden.
