Butterflies and Frogs!
As part of our life-cycle topic, we have had both caterpillars and frogspawn in the classes for the children to watch. We been really lucky with the caterpillars: we watched them grow to ten times their original size before the chrysalis stage and then yesterday morning, on our return from the bank holiday weekend, we had some beautiful Painted Lady butterflies!
The children have been fascinated with each stage and were delighted when we were able to release the butterflies into the wild.
The frogspawn did develop into a few tadpoles, but we only have one left which is a shame. We will report if that one becomes a frog.
