Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning


The Miracle of Metamorphosis was evident in full colour in Reception this week, to help the children as part of their understanding the world.

As a colourful follow up to Science Week, we organised for reception to have a butterfly garden. This way they were able to see the life cycle of a butterfly and we're very excited when they turned from caterpillars into pupae and then into our beautiful Painted Lady butterflies!

When they were waiting to turn into butterflies, everyone was most amused by the strange wiggling dance of each chrysalis, which looked like they were shaking their bottoms! Then they watched in awe and wonder as the butterflies emerged before finally releasing them into the wild this week and watching them flutter off into the spring sunshine!
