The very caring caterpillar crowd
Pupils from Lavender Lodge School were delighted when Science Lead, Cassia Bissessar arranged an exciting delivery of 10 caterpillars to their classrooms.
Over a number of weeks, they got the opportunity to observe the metamorphosis of caterpillars into butterflies and explored the impact of temperature, light and environment on their life cycle, which not only encouraged critical thinking but helped pupils grasp the idea that living organisms are influenced by their surroundings.
On the last day of the project, animal enthusiasts waved goodbye to their butterflies, who flew away back to nature.
What a lovely way to conclude their project!
