The Circle of Life

Gold Class is very excited to have live caterpillars at school. As part of our growing theme we are learning about new life in SPHE. We have been learning about the lifecycle of a butterfly and our live caterpillars help us watch this change of life. We are excited to see our catterpillars make their cocoon soon and then turn into bufferflies. IMG_1147 IMG_1148 IMG_1149 IMG_1150
