New butterflies

29th June 2017

All of our caterpillars have now hatched into beautiful butterflies!

We were so lucky today that one of the butterflies came out at play time while Mrs Haynes was watching it and so she filmed it for us. Watch how the butterfly pushes its way out of the cocoon!

Our butterfly book told us that the butterfly likes to stretch and curl its long tongue as soon as it emerges and you can see this on the video.

We are excited to let all of our butterflies free in the nursery garden tomorrow.
