Hope you all had a happy Monday. It's looking beautiful weather at the moment so hopefully another sunny day today.
Yesterday when I arrived home in the afternoon, I found we had no electricity and it wasn't due to come back on for another few hours as a tree had fallen on some power cables. Nothing in the house worked. I couldn't do school work on the computer or check my emails, or even do my zoom ukulele session in the evening. And the oven wouldn't work! So our family took the opportunity of going to the beach again for some fish and chips - delicious.
Have a good day.

We are making our book about butterflies this week and below is a powerpoint that tells you about the life cycle of the butterfly, building on what we learnt from Dr Seuss yesterday. There is also a 3 minute film you can watch which shows all the different stages of an egg hatching into a caterpillar, and how the caterpillar eats and sheds its skin and then forms a chrysalis. It even shows it hatching from the chrysalis - do watch it, it's fascinating.
I thought it would then be nice to have a go at painting a butterfly. I have put a link to different types of butterflies. Choose a butterfly that you like the look of and see if you can paint it. Look closely at the patterns and see if you can use the same colours to produce the same patterns. I have put a butterfly template below which you can use to paint within.
It would be lovely to see any painted or coloured butterflies.
