    Caterpillars

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    The caterpillars have now moved house. They have hardened enough for me to take them out of their cup and into their new habitat. One has fallen off but I think he is still okay. You can see their discarded bodies at the top of the chrysallis!

    Our Caterpillars have now turned into Chrysalises

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Our caterpillars have stopped eating! They are now so much bigger and have been eating and spinning silk inside their cup. They crawled to to the top of the lid and hung in a 'J' shape. I have now seen them harden into chrysalides (chrysalides are also known as pupae). The change inside the chrysalis is slow and gradual. I always thought they simply grew wings inside the chrysalis but I was wrong. I have looked in up and found out that the caterpillar’s body digests itself from the inside out! The caterpillar is attacked by the same sort of juices that it used in its earlier life to digest food. Many of the organs are hidden in the caterpillar and they take a new form within the chrysalis! Cool!

    We made chick pom poms as part of our art. It was a bit tricky but with perseverance they did really well! Here is Tosia's super cute little chick.

    Caterpillars

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Year 2 have been enjoying watching our caterpillars munch and grow. Please let the children know that Lucy Junior, Bella, Poppy, Ralph and Sonic are safe. I have brought them home and will blog if anything happens whilst we aren't at school. They have taken longer than expected to go into cocoons so hopefully they will continue to take their time so the children don't miss it!
