The Chicks have Arrived!
We have been very excited waiting for the eggs to be delivered to our nursery. In preparation we have been learning all about the life-cycle of chicks by listening to stories and playing with the chick life-cycle exploration set.
The eggs arrived on Monday in their incubator and by Tuesday morning they were already beginning to hatch!
We excitedly watched them peck out of the eggs and fluff up in the incubator.
By Wednesday we moved them to their new home and have had lots of discussion about what the chicks are doing. Some of the children have even been stroking and holding the chicks very gently.
Finally we went to visit the hens in the school garden to complete our learning about the chicks life-cycle.
