We had a lovely surprise on Monday morning when we returned to Nursery; we had a butterfly that had emerged from its chrysalis. There was a lot of interest in the butterfly house; we talked about the life cycle of a butterfly and what we needed to do next to look after the butterflies. Children helped to feed the butterflies with some strawberries and left over fruit from snack time.
Children noticed the beautiful pattern on the wings of the butterflies and we talked about their symmetry. In the creative area, children had a go at creating their own butterflies. We folded our paper in half and pressed down to make a print. It was the same on both sides!
We’re waiting for a sunny day to release the butterflies into our garden. Watch this space!
