We learnt a new word yesterday – ‘chrysalides’ – which means more than one chrysalis! It’s a bit tricky to say…(even Miss Smale keeps getting it wrong!!)

We moved the chrysalides out of the cup (which was mostly caterpillar poo by this point). It was a bit scary because they are so delicate and we had to make sure we kept them as still as possible!

‘They were shaking a lot, which means they thought there were predators’ – says Oscar.

We managed to safely get them into the net…with a few wobbles…and we are so excited for them to start emerging!!
