Brackenfield Butterflies

With the onset of some warm sunny days, Summer is definitely here and Brackenfield School Nursery Class have taken the chance in this warm spell to release the Monarch butterflies they have been rearing in their class. The class have closely followed the butterflies four stages of life; egg, larva, pupa and butterfly. Nursery Manager, Alison Turner was delighted the butterflies could be released in the warm weather .“This is a wonderful way for the children to learn about life cycles and this project was praised by Ofsted when they rated the department Outstanding. The children are fascinated to see the butterflies develop and were very excited to see them fly off in the garden. We hope this inspires a love of wildlife and conservation from such a young age.” The photograph shows the children about to release the butterflies and Joseph with a Monarch butterfly on his arm.
