The Painted Lady Butterfly larvae (caterpillars) pupated at the weekend… They will transform over the next few days. Three of them didn’t manage to hang themselves up properly but we hope they will still hatch healthily. Take a look at shape and colour of them… What do you notice..? Watch the clip using the link below to remind yourself of the cycle so far and how they will change.
These are 2Ms caterpillars ready to pupate. They are making a ‘j’ shape with their bodies.

Wow! Look at the size (length and thickness) of the caterpillars at the end of this week!!! They’re about 5 centimetres long now – How quickly they have grown!!! There is so much caterpillar poo called ‘frass’ in the pot now (the small and larger dark green balls) and lots of rolled up old skin that they have shedded (the small black spiky balls). We think that they will be pupating very soon….Take a look at the photo:
Just look at the size (length and thickness) of the caterpillars today!!! They’re about 3 centimetres long already!!! They’re also really spiky. There are a lot of small, green balls at the bottom of the pot… This is actually caterpillar poo called ‘frass’! Take a look at the photo:

Our Painted Lady Butterfly caterpillars arrived today. We have taken a photo and noticed that they are around 1 centimetre long. We also spotted their silky webs. Take a look for yourself.
This week we had a lovely campfire to end the half term. We had to remember to sit still and also keep our feet still. We thought about the fact that there are 3 things a fire needs to keep burning:
Fuel – wood
Air – oxygen
Heat – spark from a flint
Some children noticed that the air by the fire wobbling… that is because the heat was making the oxygen move around quickly!
We enjoyed hot chocolate and toast around the campfire… Yummy 😋
Thank you to Mrs Sodhi for a wonderful half term’s worth of fun in the forest and also to Mrs Meally and Mrs Sibley too.
Take a look at the photos…
We’ve learnt so much about our local area over the past half term. Watch our videos and be impressed with our local knowledge.
Watch us performing this piece using the notes B, A and G on our recorders! Wow! 😄👍🏼
