Event - Class 3's Insects

11 July 2011

In Class 3 our homework on insects produce some great results. Over the last half term we have been watching our tiny caterpillars turn themselves into chrysalides and then emerged as beautiful Painted Lady butterflies.

The first butterfly appeared on Thursday 7th July followed by another one on Friday and when we came to school on Monday morning we had 23!

It has been amazing to watch and in a few days we will set them free.
