Butterflies in Elm class, by Miss Smith-Shelton

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.
