Reception Butterflies

A couple of weeks ago, Reception received some caterpillars. After putting them in their individual homes with food, we watched them grow from little bigger than a staple to much bigger and caterpillar like. The caterpillars then started doing something strange; they hung from the roofs of their house and stayed very still. Chrysalis formed in every home. They were transferred to our butterfly nets where, excitingly, butterflies emerged from the chrysalis and flew around. At last they were strong enough, after sugar water and oranges, to fly off into the sun to enjoy some freedom.
