Christopher the Butterfly

cooltext1804822492Photo 60 1While we have been learning about our big idea of CHANGE we have been lucky enough to have some butterfly chrysalises in our learning neighbourhood. They are caterpillars that are still in their cocoon, waiting to hatch into a beautiful butterfly. While we watch their lifecycle we are seeing change in nature.

When Mrs Malloch took the last one home to look after on the weekend, the chrysalis hatched.

Cade thought that the butterfly was a boy because of the colours of its markings.

We took a vote and named our new butterfly ‘Christopher’ before choosing some people to set him free in the garden.

Zara, Maryam, Olivia F and Tanisha took him outside and set him free and took some photos and a video while they did it.

    When you released Christopher was it hard?

    We’re you sad when you released him?

    We had fun watching your video.
