Year 1 Butterfly Trip

At the beginning of the term Year 1 had a very exciting trip to visit the butterfly farm at Studley Grange. Inside the butterfly house we saw butterflies and moths with all different colours, some of us even had butterflies land on us! We learnt about the life cycle of a butterfly and of a moth and were even able to see some butterflies that had just emerged from their chrysalis. We found out what butterflies eat and that they don’t live very long – only around a month! We also got to handle some different bugs. First we looked at the different skins that Snowflake the tarantula had shed – she is getting very big! Some of us were very brave and held a Madagascan hissing cockroach, although these one’s didn’t hiss because they were too tame
