Life Cycles - Caterpillars

Caterpillars to Butterflies

In Reception we are studying insects. We are observing caterpillars and watching as they go through metamorphosis. Look at how much they have grown already! We are tracking their growth and making predictions about their changes. 

 

We have observed the caterpillars go through metamorphosis and change into chrysalids and then butterflies. We fed the butterflies fruit and released them into the Reception garden. The children were incredibly excited to see the butterflies fly away. We were even lucky enough to have some of the butterflies land on us!
