Butterflies In Dove class, we have been learning about the life cycles of plants and animals. As part of this topic, we have been watching the life cycle of butterflies in the classroom! Through the post, arrived a jar with 5 tiny (about 1cm long) caterpillars. In the jar was food for them. Over the next week they ate and ate, and grew and grew!

We first spent time gathering interesting words from the displays within an exhibition gallery of precious books and manuscripts. We then reflected on the ideas and images these words evoked in our minds before recreating them, using art and drama. We are officially wordsmiths now.
