We visited Holly bush Garden Centre today. We took a look at the different fish in their aquatics department, then we visited the small mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians in the pet shop. Before we set back we enjoyed an ice cream and a play on the park!

Our Caterpillar journey part seven.
11th May 🦋 🦋 It’s happened!!..... 🦋 Some of our Caterpillars have turned into beautiful butterflies 🦋 . We even caught one emerging from their Chrysalis, take a look! 👀 🐛 🦋
We placed some flowers and sugar water into the butterflies net. This will give them the energy they need to fly off when released!
Wow’ what a lot of “messy, sticky, cold, soft, bouncy, squidgy, slippery” sensory fun with the water beads! 💦
Our Caterpillar journey part six
8th May. We transferred our Chrysalides into their net today. The children watched on as Mrs Ehlen gently removed the silk and frass surrounding the Chrysalides to enable the butterflies to emerge safely. All we need to do now is wait... 🦋 🦋
We made birthday cakes to celebrate Tia’s birthday. 🍰 🎈
Our caterpillar journey part five.
2nd May. Most of our caterpillars have turned into fully formed chrysalides. We need to wait 2-3 days before we can transfer them in to their hatching habitat.🐛
Take a look in April to see the start of our Caterpillar journey.
