Welcome to Year R!

Dear Year R Parents,

Thank you for all your support recently in these uncertain times. To not see your child walk through the classroom doors this week has been very strange for the teachers and we understand that you as parents must be feeling the same.

We miss the children’s smiley faces, their laughter and their many questions! We are thinking of them every day. Although your child is not in school, we hope that we can work together the best way we can to help the children learn and grow.

Evidence Me has been set up so that we can respond to any photos or videos that you share with us. We look forward to seeing what you child has been up to.

What's Been Happening?

Last term the chick eggs arrived. the children were super excited and could not wait till they hatched!

Every day we were asked ‘How many more sleeps?’

To our surprise one chick made an appearance a day early. The children were in amazement to see this baby chick chirping away in the incubator.  The children even had the rare opportunity to watch a chick pip away at its egg and hatch out, usually chicks hatch when it is quiet- now you can imagine how the next half an hour went – In complete silence with the children in absolute awe!

We set up a camera to be able to watch some more eggs hatch into the evening.  We will hopefully be able to get this uploaded soon. Talk to your child abut the hatching process and the differences in what the chicks look like when they hatch out of the egg to what they look like a short while later.
