We celebrated World Book Day by sharing a favourite book. In Red group the book was “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen. We enjoyed feeling the squelchy mud between our toes!
Over the last 2 weeks Red group have been able to watch chicks being born at school. There were three stages, which were the focus of Circle Times
Stage 1 - The eggs wobbled and you could hear cheeping from within the egg, just before hatching commenced. Stage 2 - The chicks started to peck their way out of their shells, they didn't need any help. Once they were out of their shell they took a while to recover from all their hard work and needed to dry off in the incubator.
Stage 3 - Once the chicks dried off and fluffed up they looked really cute. They could then be moved over together into the brooding pen to eat and drink. When they were big and strong enough the chicks were held (under supervision of course).
