From caterpillars to Butterflies!

The children recently had the chance to watch caterpillars turn into butterflies

Once upon a time there were some hairy little caterpillars.......

Year 5 and 6 children were lucky enough to have some caterpillars to watch.   They fed them some special food to make them grow.

    

The caterpillars grew and grew........

    

Then they turned into chrysalises!

  

The chrysalises just hung around doing nothing for a while......        Until one day.........

 

They had emerged as butterflies!

As this is a science report the children now know this process is all called 'Metamorphosis'. 

Ask them about the detail of what happened - there was a lot more to it than we have told you here.........
