From Caterpillars to Butterflies.
This term the Panthers children have been learning the life cycle of a caterpillar. The children checked on the caterpillars each morning to see if they could see any changes, and to make sure they had enough food. After a few weeks they began to change into a chrysalis (cocoon). Eventually we had 4 beautiful butterflies emerge, they stayed with us for a couple of days to make sure they were strong enough to go outside. We then took them outside and released them, one of the butterflies stayed around long enough for some children to have it on their tops. The children really enjoyed this experience. If your children are interested in seeing the process please have a look at the attached video which explains how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3VMl-EY2DM
