Reception’s Chicks

Over the past three weeks Reception have been eagerly watching the incubator filled with eggs. They have been carefully filling up the water and checking on the humidity, which helps the shells become soft.

On Tuesday morning, we arrived at school to discover the eggs were hatching! With great excitement, we watched over the next few days as 22 eggs hatched into chicks. The children have loved watching the life cycle and having the chicks in the classroom for lots of cuddles. All of the staff and children across the school have been regularly visiting them.

Max says “I loved having the chicks, I love stroking and holding them, the best thing about having them it watching them.”

Thank you to Poppy Ray’s Mum, who kindly supplied every-thing needed for this exciting project!
