 Last week we had an interview with Helen Griffiths on her book Treasure Beyond Measure. We talked about what inspired her and about what the book symbolises.

We also played games and learnt about collective nouns. Did you know a group of otters in called a raft? Or a group of penguins is a waddle of penguins?

For the last few weeks, we learnt some dances with Mark. Last week we did our last dance practices and it was fun, because we learnt a dance to this “Enemy” song. 

We finished the song about a week ago and also made bridges, using what we learnt about them.

Chrysalis Are Here!

 Chrysalis are here and soon to be butterflies!

Yesterday  one of our caterpillars

went on the wall and it turned into a chrysalis. We think in a day or two the caterpillar will be a butterfly. We have had 7 butterflies already. 

One hatched today, it was so pretty!

We are so happy and amazed that

a tiny insect can be pretty and cute.

One is a butterfly and about to take off on its adventure.

Here are some photos of butterflies

 and chrysalis.
