Caterpillar, cocoon, butterfly!

28th Jun 2021

What an exciting few weeks we have had! We were given a pot of five tiny caterpillars...and every day we watched them grow bigger and bigger! After one week, they started to spin their cocoons around themselves! We carefully put them inside our butterfly nets and waited for them to turn into butterflies. After ten days, they had hatched! We just couldn't believe it! We took our nets into our outside garden and let them fly away into the Summer sky...
