The children in Port Ellen Pre 5 unit have been very busy looking after some exciting new pets from our donated butterfly farm. The children transferred all the knowledge and skills that they have gained during our minibeast topic and used this to take care of our butterflies. We were all very excited when our tiny caterpillars arrived through the post. During the week they ate more and more and they grew very big and very fat – just like The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The caterpillars built their cocoon. It was fantastic being able to witness this process. The children were very patient and finally beautiful butterflies emerged from their cocoons. The children carefully held the butterflies to look at the patterns on their wings. It was a very rewarding experience releasing our butterflies into their natural habitat and a great way to conclude our great outdoor topic.
