The children in Early Years have taken part in ‘The Living Eggs’ scheme as part of our Science learning relating to animals, habitats and life cycles. Our eggs were delivered in their incubator as we returned from our Easter break. After two or three days they began to hatch!! Everyone is school was so excited and our classroom was full of both children and adults for the whole week!
9 eggs hatched (5 boys and 4 girls) and we had the responsibility of taking care of our chicks for ten days…this included feeding and cleaning them. We were amazed to watch them grow and change and found out so much about life cycles. Year 6 made fact files and power points which they shared with both Nursery and Reception.
What a fantastic experience!
