Our eggs have arrived!
The children were very excited when the farmer brought our eggs. We had lots of discussions about what animals come out of an egg; we didn't want snakes, dragons or dinosaurs in the classroom.
The farmer told us there were 9 baby chicks inside the eggs.
Have a look at the video of one of the eggs hatching.
Once the chicks had got stronger,the children were able to touch and hold the chicks. We even had some brave parents who held them during stay and play.
We have been making chicks with different medias.
The chicks always enjoyed having a run on the carpet. The children used the ipads to photograph and video the chicks.
We have read a story called ' The Great Chicken Mystery'.
We were quite worried about a fox getting our baby chicks! The children went over to the STEAM hub to design their very own hen houses, like in the story.
To celebrate World Book Day, we had a vocabulary parade in school. Each child chose a word and dressed up like that word.
We had planned to go to WHSmiths to buy the special 'World Book Day Supertato book' with our book tokens.
Some of the children went into town but all the books had sold out
The children and the teachers were very disappointed!
Miss Lawson decided to write an email to complain and write to the author of Supertato, Sue Hendra.
The author replied!!!!
The publishers very kindly sent us some Supertato books and they are sending the children a copy of the world book day Supertato Book!
The chicks are now old enough to go outside to live with the hens. They now have brown feathers and are still growing! They will start laying eggs around 6 months old.
Have a look at the videos below.
