Weekly update

It was great to be back together after a two week break for the holidays.

This week we have been very lucky to have Jacqui Knight the 'butterfly lady' come to our school to talk about the importance of looking after butterflies and shared a lot of interesting facts about them. She wore a really neat butterfly shirt and had a butterfly hat. She turned Mrs Keeley into the most beautiful monarch butterfly - we watched as she put on her wings, antennae, 6 legs because butterflies are insects, compound eyes, feet to taste with and a proboscis to suck up the nectar. Mrs Keeley looked fantastic.

Check out the monarch butterfly website - it has a lot of interesting information including ways we can support the trust.

Thanks for visiting our school Jacqui - we hope you come back and visit us again as we build a butterfly house at school.
