Happy Chicks

The Chicks  have arrived! There will be opportunities for all the children in Year 1, Year 2, Reception and Nursery to come and look at the eggs, watch them hatch and see how the chicks change as they grow. Year 1 in particular will be doing work linked to the life cycle of the chicks. You will also be able to follow their progress on the school website as we will be posting pictures of them. It will be a great opportunity for you to talk with your children about the changes they notice and to see how quickly the changes happen!
