Butterflies at Longmoor
Our KS1 classes have been observing the life cycle of the butterfly.
The tiny caterpillars arrived through the post, and grew and grew, until they turned in to a chrysalis.
The children had them in small butterfly hatcheries.
When the cocoons started to open the children were fascinated. The butterflies pushed their way out and waited for their wings to dry. Then they began to fly.
Miss Edward's class had a huge butterfly tent that they could sit inside. They were very excited and loved it when the butterflies settled on their hands and heads.
