Last week the children at Patchwork Pre-School visited Magdalen Hill Down, a butterfly reserve just outside of Winchester, managed by the Butterfly Conservation. They were met by their guide for the day, Patchwork parent, Kate Barrett. On arriving, the children had a butterfly themed story, discussed the life cycle of a butterfly and were able to look at a real cocoon. After a snack and drink, they went on a nature spotting adventure, filling out spotter sheets along the way. They used magnifying glasses to discover bugs, leaves and twigs and had a fantastic time working together to find everything on the sheet!
