When we returned to school after the weekend we had 5 butterflies! Every cocoon was empty. Our beautiful butterflies ate their orange and sugar water, they climbed to the top of the net and practiced flying down. When they were strong enough to fly we knew we had to release them outside. We have loved watching our caterpillars change into beautiful butterflies and will miss them in our classroom!
We all went outside onto the big playground, Mrs Williams and Miss Butterworth opened the net and helped the butterflies out. At first they didn’t want to leave us and kept flying back to the children! Once the butterflies were safe on the leaves in the trees we waved goodbye!
