As you all know, we have been learning about the life cycles of different living things.
We had the opportunity to grow our very own butterflies. For the last 21 days we have been observing the caterpillars and finally on Monday 14th May 2018 we had 20 Butterflies. WOW!!!!!!!
As we arrived at the nursery on Monday 14th May 2018, we were all excited to receive the news that the butterflies had started to emerge from their cocoon.
Having front row seats for this event, was truly an enthralling and amazing experience for the children to see.
We respectfully allowed the butterflies to rest for a while after emerging from their cocoon; we finally had the opportunity we were waiting for!! We were then able to gently hold the butterflies. It was an amazing experience for the children to actually hold them and watch them fly away to a new home. It was so really exciting to hold them, and one of the butterflies landed on a child’s nose. The child showed such joy. After all the excitement, we couldn’t wait to tell our parents about the new butterflies at Ferndale. We can’t wait to see what we are going to learn next!!!
What a great way to learn!!
