Ms. Flaherty's butterflies

We released three of our butterflies (Bingo, Buttercups and Jumping Bean) from our butterfly garden last week as they had hatched successfully out of the original five.

Ms.McLoughlin's butterflies fly away

Ms. Crotty's class release their butterflies

Today we came into school and we had a great surprise. We now have 4 butterflies. The butterflies came out of their cocoons and they were no longer caterpillars but beautiful Monarch Butterflies. We brought them outside into the sunshine and let them fly away. Although they did want to stay around with us as you can see from the photographs. They had some fun with us and then they flew off to begin their journey and their new life as a butterfly.

When we came back from our bank holiday break,we found all our butterflies had come out.

Some were reluctant to leave us, but we coaxed them out.Luana even managed to get the most reluctant one to fly off eventually!

Mrs. Browne's butterflies

Teacher took the butterfly garden with the caterpillars in it home for the long weekend in case they decided to hatch out. And guess what they did, one on Monday and the other 3 today. I was so glad cause I was able to give them sugary water and leaves. The kids will be so excited when I bring them in tomorrow.
