After much anticipation and many predictions as to what will hatch from the eggs, the children were extremely excited to find out that .....they are chicks! Ten beautiful fluffy yellow chicks all hatched and have given the children so much pleasure to see and they have also been able to handle them. The children have thoroughly enjoyed the experience gained from us taking delivery of the eggs to the birth of the chicks. They have learned about the life cycle of the chicken / egg, how a chick pips the shell to its hatching and how to care for them to ensure they are fed, clean and healthy.
Well done reception !
... Or are they?
We took delivery today of some very special objects. They are white and oval in shape. The children are definately sure they are eggs. However, after reading "It started with an egg!" we are as yet not quite sure what will hatch out of them. The children have made predictions suggesting snakes, lizards, frogs, crocodiles or chicks.
Watch this space to find out more. The eggs are due to hatch any day now!
