Reception Class Chicks
This week in Reception has been very exciting indeed! On Wednesday morning, we received a very special gift from Bluebell the hen. Bluebell was having trouble with her nests so she asked for the Reception children help when looking after her eggs. Bluebell has given the children 7 of her chick eggs to look after until they hatch. She had sent the children some special equipment to help them keep the chicks safe.
The children have learnt all about each piece of equipment and what is it used for. We have been watching the eggs very closely since they arrived and we have been writing about the development of the eggs. We have also learnt all about the life cycle of a hen.
