Welcome to Year 2’s caterpillar blog!

A couple of weeks ago Year 2 took delivery of a very special package. Inside our parcel we found two pots which contained five small caterpillars and some special food.

At first the caterpillars were small, about the same size as half of our little fingers. They were green and brown and quite hairy. The caterpillars were active.

After a few days we noticed  the caterpillars building their cocoons. The caterpillars have stopped eating and are still. The cocoon looks like a hard shell.
