The chicks have arrived
Class 1 and 2 were very excited on Tuesday to receive delivery of an incubator and ten eggs ready to hatch. Phil from Living Eggs showed us how to look after the eggs and how to set up the brooder box to care for the chicks after they have hatched. We will need to feed them and give them fresh water twice a day.
Then, this morning, when children arrived at school four of the eggs had already hatched! When they had dried and fluffed up we could see two are yellow and two are brown, that means we have two girls and two boys so far. Another chick hatched this evening, just before Mrs Winter went home, I wonder how many there will be by the morning?
Children are very much looking forward to holding the chicks on Friday and having a cuddle. We will also be naming the chicks so start thinking of ideas...
Story Museum Trip
We all enjoyed our visit to Oxfordshire Story Museum where we explored animals through different stories with workshops and exploration of the museum, finishing with story telling.
Red Nose Disco
Our school captains wanted to organise a disco to support Comic Relief. It was organised almost entirely by these four children and they did a great job with their music choices and DJing. Well done!
On Friday Class 1 had their sharing assembly, telling the story of Jack and the beanstalk and singing a song about how plants grow. After the assembly parents joined us in the classroom to make models of plants, children then added labels to the plant parts.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported us and took part.
World Book Day
After an exciting dance session based around either Where the Wild Things Are or The BFG, we enjoyed a week of work around these themes, culminating in dressing up as book characters. The costumes were simply amazing!
Well done to everyone (including adults) for all of your thought and hard work.
We all thoroughly enjoyed this week.
