Nearly in a cocoon

Our Caterpillars have now climbed to the top of the jar. They are now big, fat and full and are getting ready to spin their cocoons. We are watching them really closely everyday.

We have learnt this poem at school so you can say it at home with your child and they can teach you the actions:

A caterpillar crawled to the top of a tree.
"I think I'll have a nap" said he.
So under a leaf he began to creep
To spin a cocoon,
Then he feel asleep.

All winter he slept in his cocoon bed,
Till Spring came along one day and said,
"Wake up, wake up, little sleep head,
 Wake up it's time to get out of bed".
So he opened his eyes on that sun shiny day.
And he was a butterfly and flew away.

We have some very special guests in our classroom at the the form of 5 Caterpillars. We received a special delivery from Insectlore. We received a jar with 5 tiny caterpillars. They have food at the bottom of their jar and they are getting fatter and fatter by the day. We learned all about the lifecycle of the butterfly and we are going to follow all the keep checking our blog to keep updated.
