I hope you are all enjoying your Easter holidays. Today we released the butterflies so they can go and play together and make new friends in the garden. Tessa has told all of the butterflies about our school and all of the girls in our class so make sure and keep looking, you might just see one of our special butterflies in your garden or outside. Make sure and say hello if you see them and remember to be very gentle.
I hope you are having lots of fun at home. Tessa and Ms. Wall have some very exciting news. Our first butterfly has emerged from their chrysalide. Tessa was very excited. Look at the difference in the butterfly’s wings after a couple of hours, they have dried off and you can see the beautiful colours!!
Tessa decided to call the butterfly Tabby.More exciting news on the butterflies over the next few days so make sure to check back. We will release them after a few days with plenty of pictures to follow.
Our caterpillars have now formed into chrysalides so it was time to move them to their butterfly habitat. There was a lot of wiggling and shaking when we moved them but they are now in their new home ready for their beautiful transformation. One of the chrysalides didn’t stick to the lid so he will emerge as a butterfly from the piece of tissue. We will have our five class butterflies within the next week, how exciting 😁 I hope you are all keeping well and listening to all the adults at home.
