Here at Balliol we have been growing our own butterflies. We got a special kit with some caterpillars and have enjoyed watching as the caterpillars grew and turned into butterflies.

The children really enjoyed watching the transformation take place and were so excited when our butterflies hatched out of their cocoons. We put slices of fruit and a sugar solution into their enclosure to feed them until they were ready to be released outside.

We have also been making our own fruit smoothies with lots of different fruits. The children all helped prepare the fruit and add it to the blender. We even put some in the freezer to create smoothie pops. It was great to able to enjoy a healthy fruity snack!
