Butterflies in Reception Class

051Reception class have witnessed one of natures greatest miracles right before their eyes – the life cycle of butterflies.  Children have watched the transformation day by day in their classroom from the small caterpillar state all the way through to metamorphosis to a painted lady butterfly. This week the butterflies have emerged and the children have enjoyed feeding them nectar from fruit and flowers.

When they first emerge they are damp and have crumpled wings. Cason said “they are flapping their wings to make them dry so they can fly”. Suhanna was amazed when she witnessed them eating the apple. Each of the children wrote ideas of what they should name them and the class voted for their favourite names before releasing the butterflies into the wild – Freedom Day! Owen said “soon they will lay more eggs and they’ll be caterpillars and butterflies too!” Reception class have certainly learnt a great deal about these beautiful insects well done!
