On Monday there was great excitement in Year 2 as our hen eggs arrived and one chick hatched on the way! When we came in on Tuesday morning another chick had hatched in the night and another hatched as teachers arrived in school. A fourth chick tried very hard to hatch on Tuesday but by the end of the day it was still not free of its shell and was helped to freedom by Miss Lawrance!
The incubator and brooder were move to Year 2M on Wednesday morning and another chick hatched giving us a total of 6 chicks. By the end of Thursday they were all in the brooder and happily cheeping away. Mrs Jackson- Robbins has taken them home for the weekend and I am sure her children will be very excited.
The chicks are growing very quickly and hopefully now that they are stronger the children will get the opportunity to handle them next week.
We are all looking forward to our trip to Ashridge on Wednesday and looking at the weather forecast we are in for a very hot week. Can I please remind you that we cannot apply sun cream and I would ask that you ensure you do this before the children arrive in school and particularly on Wednesday morning.
We have a very busy week ahead of us and look forward to seeing many of you at our Celebration Evening. Your children will be singing some of the songs we have been learning for the Year 2 Music Festival.
