This term Year 2 have been exploring the Science unit 'Watch It Grow'. On Monday 29 June, the students were very excited for the arrival of 10 fertilised chicken eggs. They were lucky enough to observe the chicks hatch in an incubator on Tuesday. The chicks have now been moved into a brooder box which contains a heat lamp to provide warmth for our little feathery friends.

The Chick Hatching Program is running for two weeks. During this time, the students will be exploring the life cycle of a chicken and learning lots of information about these interesting animals. They will also learn how to care for the baby chicks and will definitely be able to have lots of gentle cuddles with them.
