Creepy Crawlies in the Pirate Ship

 

On Friday 25th April 2014, our caterpillars arrived at Fleetdown. The Pirates were very excited!
The pot, which is a specifically designed home, has air holes to enable the caterpillars to breathe and enough food for them to grow. When they are ready, they will climb to the top of the pot and become chrysalides (chrysalis - singular, chrysalides - plural). After 7 to 14 days they will emerge as beautiful Painted Lady butterflies. The Pirates will then release them in our school field.
