Butterflies

Butterflies

Another start to another Year 4 and the thirteen children from last year’s Year 3 have been joined by four new pupils from other schools. A grand total of seventeen!

In true Skippers Hill style, our newbies have been made to feel welcome and are now fully integrated into the form.We talked about starting new stages in your life in the first SKULL lesson; things such as a new school, a new class, a new club. Words such as nervous, excited, worried, expectant came up, as did that feeling in your stomach as if it is full of butterflies.

And then.......

Milly brought in a box containing some cabbage white chrysalises. There was also a caterpillar which we have seen transform itself into another chrysalis.

On Monday 15th September the first butterfly emerged. We took it outside to introduce it to the big wide world. After a short breather, sitting on a plant, the butterfly took off and headed off into the wide blue yonder to start a new life. There are still six more to go!

I wonder if butterflies get butterflies.....
