The children were excited to meet our new arrivals at school last week! What first began as 10 eggs, quickly became 10 very cute, fluffy chicks.
The children very much enjoyed this amazing process...from the eggs being inside the incubator, spotting the first signs of the eggs 'pipping' (the first small crack in the shell), to the chicks emerging from the shells. Once the chicks were strong enough they could be moved into the brooder box where the children could observe how they moved, fed, slept together and even had a few cuddles with them!
Whilst watching this new life emerge before them, the children enjoyed learning about chicks, their lifecycle and a range of 'chick art'.
