Newly Hatched Chicks
Over the past few days there have been some exciting additions to all three Reception classes - each class now has six newly hatched fully yellow chicks!
The pupils were able to watch all 18 hatching in the incubator and once the chicks had dried out they were transferred to three large, warm brooder containers in the classrooms. The pupils are able to watch them feeding and sleeping during the day and have been learning all about them. On the 1st may they will be collected and taken to a farm where they will grow up to be free range, happy chickens. It has been an exciting week in Reception!
