Butterfly Education and Awareness Day (BEAD) was on 4th June, so this week we have focussed on the theme of butterflies - with some bamboo bubble blowers thrown in for good measure!
We talked about types of butterflies that we have seen around this year - from the Holly Blue to the Orange Tip - and the children had a hunt that they could go on. They were very keen to make butterfly feeders which can be soaked in ‘nectar’ (2tsps of sugar mixed with 1/4 cup of water) and hung in gardens for the butterflies. Nature pictures, mud paint butterflies (with talk of symmetry!) and decorations were also popular.
Snack this week was crumpets and strawberry jam for the Buccaneers, and rhubarb crumble and nettle cordial for Hurricanes…the nettle cordial had mixed reviews; some loved it - but some did not!!
