On Monday we got a very exciting delivery, we had lots of fun guessing what might have been in the box. We were very surprised and excited to see that we had actually got 10 teeny tiny caterpillars!
We have been taking really good care of the caterpillars all week.
Other classes have enjoyed coming in to see the caterpillars.
Every day two girls draw what they can see in the tubs in our observation book...
Every day the caterpillars are growing, changing and moving.
Ms O'Connor took the caterpillars home at the weekend and she has been reading them some bed time stories, look how much they have grown!
We have also become illustrators and in small groups we illustrated the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Here we are at work.
The caterpillars then turned into chrysalis!
Then they moved into a new home! We put out oranges, apples and sugar water waiting patiently for our butterflies to arrive.
Here is a video of one of our butterflies emerging from the chrysalis. We sang the butterfly song to help him on his way!
