After weeks of watching them grow and progress through their life cycle, last Friday was the day to release the butterflies from Múinteoir James’s classroom. It has been fascinating to watch them grow from tiny caterpillars into big hungry caterpillars (just like the book!) spend time in their cocoon and finally emerge as beautiful butterflies. We enjoyed gathering wild flowers to feed them and it was lovely to see them fly from their butterfly garden. Some of them even landed on our hands to say goodbye!
