Superpillars Assemble

In this dance and science adventure pupils will learn about moths and butterflies and their habitats. They will learn about the important role that butterflies and moths have in food chains, and how different animals in the food chain are dependent on each other to survive. They will find out about the different ways that habitats can be changed by humans and understand how these habitat changes can pose dangers to butterflies and moths and have a knock-on effect on other animals in the food chain.
