We started off the week by introducing our whole school topic ‘Take a closer look.’ We did activities in different classrooms and in mixed classes with children in other year groups.
This week we had some eggs delivered to school. The eggs were in an incubator to keep them warm. Then one by one the eggs started to hatch.
We have 5 boy chicks which are the yellow chicks and 5 girls chicks which are brown. They are now in a brooder box which is bigger than the incubator but it has a lamp as they still need to keep warm. They like to sleep, cheep, drink and eat.
Next week, when they are stronger, we hope to hold them.
We also have some caterpillars and we are watching them grow.
Our activities this week have been all about caterpillars, eggs and chicks.
