My classroom has had a new addition to go alongside my beetles.
As we are taking part in Hull City of Culture we are spending the year studying different aspects of Hull. This term we are looking at the history and will be covering Amy Johnson. Across the city giant moths have sprung up to celebrate Amy Johnson’s amazing life.
In order to add to the celebrations and indulge my love of the natural world we know have 10 tiger moth caterpillars. The caterpillars known as fuzzy bear caterpillars are supposed to be easy to rear eating most low lying green leaves: dandelions, nettles, brambles, etc. So hopefully over the year we will get to see them grow and eventually pupate.
So hopefully by next Summer we will of had some of these beauties.
