Reception have been taking full advantage of our wonderful pond this term. The children have visited this area several times and have had the opportunity to observe newts, tadpoles and dragonfly nymphs close-up. Mr. Walmsley has shared his expertise with us, making regular visits and created a pond habitat within the classroom. We have been fascinated to watch the transition from tadpole to frog in detail; “This is amazing!” has been a frequent cry!
Alongside this we have been watching the transformation of caterpillars into butterflies and were thrilled to be able to watch the exact moment that a butterfly emerged from the chrysalis. A memorable and magical time indeed!
