The children watch with fascination and discuss the changes they see happening, using newly acquired words such as 'cocoon'.The transformation of caterpillar to butterfly will then lead into the last termly focus of transition as children get ready for their next stage of learning.The setting provides children with an extremely language-rich environment.

Children share in stories with staff members. Staff read with interest, allowing children to join in with familiar refrains. Time is taken to give children opportunities to recall what has happened and make predictions about what might happen next.
