Hatching Butterlfies

There has been great excitement and anticipation in the school while the children waited for the first butterfly to emerge.

We started with 32 caterpillars on 8th of May. We watched and waited as they grew and grew. We watched and waited some more as they formed into chrysalides.

Then on 3rd June some lovely butterflies emerged.

We released all the butterflies on 11th of June, much to the excitement of all the children.
