This term we will be looking at books by Eric Carle to learn about Mini-beasts.
During week 1 we will celebrate Earth Day and learn how to take care of our planet.
We will watch caterpillars grow and change into butterflies!
What have we been up to this term?
Caterpillars- Cocoons- Butterflies!
Observe our butterflies: Video 1
This little butterfly emerged from it's cocoon about half an hour after the children left school for half term! Its wings are still unfolding in this video.
Observing our butterflies: Video 2
A close-up video of this little butterfly on the day it emerged. Can you see its long feelers and antenna moving? What colours can you see on it's wings?
Observing our Butterflies- Video 3
After eating lots of fruit, sugar water, and bright pink flowers, this butterfly was ready to be released! We took this video on 1/06/21, just before this little guy was released into our outdoor classroom. Notice the symmetrical pattern on its wings and the empty cocoon shell.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
