Butterflies in Year 2
Year 2 took delivery of 10 tiny caterpillars after the Easter Holidays. We excitedly watched them munch and grow, and munch and grow over the following 2 weeks. By then, they were ready to hang from the lid of the food pot and begin the fascinating process of metamorphosis. A further 2 weeks passed, and on a Friday afternoon the children got to witness the butterflies emerging from their chrysalis. We fed them fruit and nectar and then one warm, sunny morning we released them on our Key Stage 1 field. They were stunningly beautiful and happily landed on some of the children before flying off.
