Our beautiful butterflies!

This half term, class 2 have been learning about minibeasts. To help us learn about life cycles, we got some baby caterpillars and observed how they grew and changed. The first photograph shows how tiny they were at the beginning! After 10 days they were big, fat and hairy and by day 12 they had turned into chrysalises. We watched eagerly and by day 20 they had transformed into beautiful butterflies! When they were ready, we released them into the wild. It was amazing watching them flutter about and some even landed on us!
