We had Caterpillars arrive in our Nursery!

This week we had a package arrive from the butterfly farm which had five caterpillars inside.

The children closely watched them moving around in the pot and eating their leaf mixture.

Nursery pupils are seen learning about Caterpillars with a variety of activities.

During small group time the children learnt about the life-cycle of a butterfly. They used many different words to describe how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly such as, cocoon.

The children listened to the story of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.”

They enjoyed painting symmetrical patterns as well as making patterns from different coloured resources.
