Butterflies in Nursery

Over the past few weeks we have been watching and waiting for our 33 caterpillars to become beautiful butterflies.  When they arrived we had to separate them into individual pots and give them food, then we monitored them every day and watched them get bigger until the turned into a chrysalis.  After this we moved them into the nets and waited for them to emerge into butterflies.  We then kept them in the nets and fed them lots of lovely sweet fruit for a couple of days before releasing them today in the garden.  The children have learnt a lot and they have really enjoyed watching them grow.
