Beautiful Butterflies and Delicious Kebabs

The children have continued to enjoy our project this term. They have been very excited watching our caterpillars grow and turn into cocoons. Everyday, they were watching to see when they would emerge and finally they did – ‘beautiful butterflies’ were the comments from many children as they watched them spread their wings. This week, we released the butterflies and watched them as they took flight.

We wrote poems using our senses and imagining what the butterflies might see, hear, taste, smell and feel as they entered their new world. We also enjoyed recounting how the caterpillars grew into butterflies and wrote about this in our English this week.

Yesterday, we all enjoyed using our sense of smell, taste and sight when making our vegetable kebabs. The repeating patterns the children made on the kebabs were fab, they smelt delicious and all the children said they tasted ‘yummy!’. It was great fun. The children enjoyed writing their own simple recipes for their kebab, so they should be able to tell you how to make them.

As the children approach the end of this project, we would like to invite you to come in and see their artwork in the small hall on Wednesday 23rd October, 8.30-8.45 am.

Thank you for all you support.
