The children have been learning about Easter and Holy Week . This week we have been discussing Palm Sunday and the Last Supper. Using their phonic knowledge the children wrote about what they have learned. Some children drew pictures depicting Jesus on the Cross and we remember by saying daily prayers at this special time.
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 !
