Minibeast fun!

In Reception we have been very excited to start a new topic about Minibeasts! This week we started learning about butterflies and caterpillars. We have watched lots of exciting videos about caterpillars turning from eggs into caterpillars, into a chrysalis and finally turning into a beautiful butterfly.  The children learnt this is called metamorphosis. Here are some pictures of their butterfly lifecycles.

The children were amazed by all the different coloured butterflies. We looked very carefully at the patterns and shapes on their wings and learnt that all the 4 wings are the same. We read a fact card about caterpillars and butterflies and learnt lots of exciting facts! Did you know butterflies taste with their feet? The children have created lots of minibeast arts and crafts!

Keep up the super topic work Reception!
