Excitement in Year 1!

Year 1 came in on Tuesday morning to find some new arrivals in Otter Class. Some chicken eggs in an incubator! Over the next few days, the eggs hatched into chicks and are now in a specially  designed warming container where the children can watch them eat, drink and grow.

The chicks support Year 1’s Science topic looking at  living things and the seasons. As we move into Summer, the children will be able to see how the chicks grow and what they need to survive. At the moment, the chicks are under sun lamps, so there will be predictions made as to why this is necessary. All of the children in Year 1 are loving this experience! If you would be interested in re-homing any of the chicks when they are ready to leave us, then please contact the school office!
