Butterfly House

Map of the area




Guiding Principle

There was a problem. Our caterpillars were all over the place:- in Ms Kofoed's car and getting squashed in the carpark. Room 3 wanted to solve the problem because we knew that butterflies were important in our ecosystem and we wanted to grow them at our school but with all the caterpillars getting squashed we couldn't do that so we decided to look into this matter.

Theme/ Big Question

"How can we grow butterflies at our school and look after them?"


We chose to build the butterfly house at the back because it was far from the carpark and the caterpillars would be safe there.
