Chicks in nursery

On Monday we were very excited to receive some chick’s eggs in nursery. At first we kept them in a special incubator to keep them warm. We have been carefully observing them and have watched some chicks emerge. Today when we arrived at nursery we discovered that all nine eggs have now hatched. Yesterday they looked very tired and were struggling to stand but today they have really fluffed up and are making lots of noise as they move around their crate. We have discovered that the brown chicks are girls and the yellow ones are boys. This experience has helped us to learn about life-cycles. I wonder if we will observe any changes next week.

Harvest

We recently collected our potatoes and carrots from our garden. We were delighted with the harvest we had produced. We used our potatoes to make mashed potatoes, soup and potato salad. We have also been using balance scales to help to compare the weights of the potatoes and have been using the mathematical language, heavier than, lighter than and the same as.

Our second chick has arrived. Our children have named them Wendy and Olivia.

Great excitement- 1 chick has hatched

We arrived this morning to find one chick had already hatched. We can already see a tiny hole in another egg and it looks like the second one won’t be long. We’ll post an update later today. 007

Raising Funds for Type One Diabetes

On Friday 13th November, Springfield Primary School pupils and teachers dressed up in onesies to raise money for type one diabetes. Primary 7 delivered an informative, exciting and creative assembly explaining all about type one diabetes. It was a super assembly and great fun was had by all.
