RECEPTION

Beginning to say goodbye.
We came into school this morning to lots of butterflies. Our caterpillars had made their transformation and crawled out of their cocoons.  We decided to release the butterflies that were ready. Lots of children got the opportunity to hold them, they were so wonderful and caring. We put the butterflies on a safe plant and waited for them to fly off. 
It has been an amazing experiance to watch.
