‘The pupils performing the show enjoyed it greatly, especially singing the songs, which they learn quite quickly and sang with enthusiasm. The songs have great tunes and lyrics and a non-specialist teacher could teach them fairly easily. The fact that the show reinforces the curriculum is a bonus.’
- KS, Music Subject Leader, Eastbourne.
A little caterpillar wishes she could flutter about like a butterfly. She tries fluttering her legs, but that just makes the animals laugh, telling her she'll never be a butterfly because she's got no wings! Trying to be kind, they say perhaps she's a 'flutterpillar', although of course there is no such thing.
Wanting a better view of the butterflies, Flutterpillar climbs up into a bush. As she hides among the leaves to keep safe, something magical happens! Her caterpillar skin starts to shed and a chrysalis begins to form.
Safe within her chrysalis, Flutterpillar is able to rest. When the animals come looking for her, the flowers tell them she's fast asleep. This makes the animal's think they've been proved right: she'll never be a butterfly. But when it's time for Flutterpillar to wake up, they get a surprise. She has turned into a butterfly! Her dream has come true!
A simple but vibrant show that helps to teach the life cycle of a butterfly, 'Flutterpillar' is ideal as part of a minibeast topic.
