On Tuesday 25th March, Year 1 travelled to St Albans to visit Butterfly World. First we explored all the gardens. It was raining a little but we didn't mind! We went in the 'Honey I Shrunk the Kids' garden where all the flower pots were gigantic! We were amazed by the enormous match box and key.
We then went into the small insect house where we were able to handle stick insects and a hissing cockroach! Some of us were brave but Mrs West wasn't! After we had looked at Owl Butterflies hatching from a chrysalis we went into the Butterfly House. Some of the butterflies were fluttering and they landed on us! They seemed to like our red jumpers and children with blonde hair!
After a trip to the shop, we got back on the coach for home. What a wonderful day... Now we are looking forward to welcoming our baby caterpillars in June where we will watch them turn into a chrysalis and hatch in our butterfly garden.
