Bye bye, butterflies! It was time to release the butterflies today: they didn't want to leave us at first, but eventually flew away!
A great shot of the beautiful wings
Food for the butterflies: some slices of orange and sugar and water solution on a tissue.
Butterfly update! This morning we found that three butterflies have hatched. Apologies that photos aren’t great, but you’ll see them properly on Monday!
Caterpillar update! Only seven caterpillars have made it to the pupation stage. The chrysalides have now been placed into the butterfly net, and will hatch into butterflies in 7-14 days. If I possibly can, I’ll keep them in the net until we’re all back at school so that we can release them together. Keep checking back here for photos!
Caterpillar update! Our caterpillars are enjoying their Easter holidays at Mrs Marks’ house, and have now started pupating. The first picture shows the size they were when we got them, the second picture shows how they look now. I’ll keep you posted!
The nursery boys and girls were encouraging Mrs Hazelton, Mrs O'Neill and Mrs Marks when they were on the spin bikes! We needed those big cheers!
The afternoon class completed their sponsored walk today: they walked a whole mile! Didn't they do great! All for the Air Ambulance: such a good cause.
The morning class were as fit as fiddles completing their mile walk for the Air Ambulance! Well done boys and girls!
The afternoon children loved having their guests here for our Easter tea party. We sang our Easter songs and loved the yummy food!
Our morning class enjoyed bringing their special guests in for our Easter tea party: as well as some Easter songs, we had some delicious scones and buns! Yum yum!
We had a great Easter fun day at College Farm nursery: we had a magic show, lots of Easter craft and a picnic outside! It was fantastic! Thank you to Mrs Murphy, Mrs McKinney and all the staff of College Farm.
Our love of all things furry continued today, when Annie and her granda, Alan, brought Annie's rabbit, Snowflake, in to nursery to see the boys and girls. He was so fluffy and soft, and had lovely long ears. Everyone loved him!
