Year 2

The latest news from Year 2

The highlight of this term has most definitely been our chicks. 39 eggs were delivered to us complete with incubators and brooders from “Chicken School” We waited in anticipation for the slightest movement, a little wobble and even listened intently for cheeping from inside the eggs. Then finally, after 2 days of waiting patiently, on the Wednesday, the first egg tooth appeared. The children were lucky enough to witness the hatching of many of these eggs and loved watching them grow into strong, healthy chicks. Not only was this an exciting experience for the children to be part of but it provided a fantastic learning tool. The children gained a great deal of scientific knowledge about a chicken’s life cycle and the opportunity provided them with a fantastic stimulus for their writing.  We are all incredibly proud of your children as they have continued to work so hard this term. They have particularly enjoyed practising and performing Christmas carols to you and making delicious mince pies for you to enjoy. !
