The Chicks came to stay in Reception!
Reception have been celebrating their topic for this term ‘Living and growing’ by having the chicks come to stay.
"The chicks with the lighter feathers are the boys and the chicks with the darker feathers are the girls. They have two stripes down their back."
"It feels so soft to touch."
The children were so excited when the eggs arrived in the incubator. They observed them for three days and then they began to hatch.
"The chicks like to jump."
"The hens incubate the eggs for 21 days and then they begin to hatch."
Once the chicks had grown bigger and their feathers were fluffy the children enjoyed holding them. All the children used kind and gentle hands to hold and stroke them.
