Wildlife around school

posted in: Science | 0

We have been digging and planting some flowers around school since ‘Love Your School Day’.

Last week we uncovered a chrysalis which was exciting. Having looked it up it’s a common moth called a large yellow underwing which pupates just under the surface of the soil and takes maybe 10-20 days to hatch.

If you find any in your garden keep them slightly covered with soil.

If you’d like to know more about the moth you can look it up here:
