This term's theme is 'Changes'

During this term we give the children the opportunity to talk about growing and how we, and other living things, change over time as we grow. To further the children's understanding we give them first hand experience of the life cycle of the frog, the chicken and the butterfly. Our tadpoles are developing very well this year. They went for a holiday back to the school pond over Easter, and then we collected them up again so the children could continue to watch the changes in them. They have started from frog spawn, and I spotted one today with 4 legs! They'll soon be hopping all over the place, to the delight of Mrs Winstanley!






Our chicks have been successful this year too. Out of 12 eggs we have 10 healthy chicks. Nearly all the children managed to see a hatching and some of the chicks have wing feathers already.

It's all excitement as the chicks start to peck their way out

Hello World! That was hard work.

We're soon dry and fluffy.

Our brooder has a glass side so the children can watch whenever they like.

This afternoon they were strong enough to come out for a play. If the weather warms up we will be able to take them out onto the grass outside.
