The Butterflies flew the net !

we had some very exciting visitors to Junior Infants while we learnt about the different life cycles we focused on the life cycle of a caterpillar and the different stages it goes through before it becomes a butterfly.

Our 10 wiggly friends arrived on a Monday morning and stayed under our watchful eye and tender care for almost 4 weeks!

we watched them turn from tiny caterpillars into big caterpillars to cocoons and eventually they broke out of their cocoon and became big beautiful butterflies and we brought them outside and opened the net and watched them fly away.

we really enjoyed watching them grow and miss having them in our classroom for sure!
