From Caterpillars to Butterflies

Still image for this video
The caterpillars which the Nursery have been looking after, changed into butterflies this week and were released on Thursday. The children observed the different stages of the life cycle as the caterpillars grew and changed into butterflies. They were also able to see one of the butterflies emerging from its chrysalis.

Science Week

We decided to find out how flowers take in water. We put some cut flowers in a bottle of water with some blue food colouring and waited to see what would happen. The next day the flowers had started to go blue. Some children thought that someone had painted them! We put the end of a piece of kitchen towel into the blue water and watched to see what would happen. The blue colour started to spread up the paper towel making it blue, just like the flowers.
