Nursery have enjoyed watching some tiny eggs grow into hairy caterpillars. The caterpillars grew fatter each day eating sugar water. Then the day just before half term, we found that our caterpillars had disappeared and there were 5 cocoons hanging from the top of our pot. The cocoons were black with a hint of gold. Mrs Cowan kindly took the cocoons home over the holiday and the butterflies hatched out, so Mrs Cowan had to let the butterflies fly away.
