Caterpillar update - changes have happened!

22nd June 2017

Our caterpillars have been busy! They were making silk which helps them to attach themselves to surfaces and have been getting bigger and bigger. Then they all climbed up to the top of the tub and made a hook shape. When we came into school the next day, they had all hardened their bodies and made cocoons. We have put them into the butterfly net. One of our caterpillars had not been able to get to the top of the tub as it was so hot and slippery, but it managed to make a cocoon at the bottom, so we have put it at the bottom of the net. Now we are waiting for our butterflies to emerge!
