Butterflies in Elm class, by Miss Smith-Shelton

Date: 29th Jun 2018 @ 5:03pm

In Elm class, we have been learning about the life cycle of caterpillars. As part of this, we have been observing the tranformation of caterpillars to buttterflies. We started the term with 6 tiny caterpillars, but saw how they soon grew much, much bigger! After a few days, they formed chyrsallids, where they began their transformation to butterflies! On Thursday 28th, we noticed something moving in the net where we kept them and found that 2 butterflies had emerged. We came in this morning and the other 4 had emerged too!

Here are some pictures Miss Smith-Shelton and some Elm pupils took of our beautiful butterflies.

Art Day, by Mrs Swift

Date: 29th Jun 2018 @ 3:17pm

Pear Class really enjoyed Art Day which was inspired by the work of Hundertwasser.  We were asked to create a piece that represented something from our school.  Year one chose the guinea pigs.  We also decorated butterflies in the same style as Hundertwasser's paintings. 

Butterfly release, by Mrs Swift

We were amazed this morning to find five fully emerged Painted Lady Butterflies.  We released them this afternoon in our Sensory Garden.  As most of the children predicted the butterflies flew west towards the pond area.

We were very excited this morning in Year One.  We came in to find that three of our five butterflies had emerged.  We will be releasing them in a day or two but for now we are enjoying watching them.

Pear Class showed their creative side when they made models of mini beasts.  They really enjoyed working with the clay and then painting them.
