The Prep boys are learning about Life Cycles this term. Our Literature focus has been on The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. The boys have engaged in many varied activities from creating a butterfly life cycle with pasta shapes to retelling the story using the programmable Beebots. We have also been watching a couple of caterpillars munching on some tasty green leaves over the last 2 weeks. The boys were very excited to be able to observe the biggest caterpillar forming a chrysalis right before their very eyes! The chrysalis has now changed from green to black as it develops into a butterfly. It is lovely to watch the excitement as the boys arrive at school each morning looking for any changes.
