The children were incredibly well-behaved and we had a fantastic, fun time! They really were a credit to you and the school. Please peruse the photos.
How many piglets were there?
Can you remember the names of any of the animals in the petting area?

Today most of the children had an opportunity to hold their favourite chick. The remaining children will get a chance to do so on Tuesday.
Their names are: Lucy (blondie), Beryl (blonde cap), Barbara/Frank, Felicity (spotty), Zachy.
They have already started to grow wing feathers!
All five chicks have been transferred to the warm brooder box and have started to feed and drink healthily.
The two eggs that did not hatch were not fertilised, and just had a yolk and egg white inside.
Yesterday morning we noticed that three of the chicks had started to ‘pip’ holes in their eggs. They were responding to our voices and cheaping throughout the day! By 5pm the first chick had fully emerged and this morning we found five chicks in the incubator.
We shall continue to update this post with photos of them, so keep watching!
The incubator arrived in school last week and we are now on the count down to school chicks arriving. The children have recorded observations of the different eggs (seven different breeds) and predicted which chick might hatch first!
We will let you know when we see signs of hatching. We have been careful to warn the children that these special eggs will only hatch if conditions are just right and we take good care of them.
If you are interested in re-homing the chicks at the end of the process, please speak to Mr Haigh.
Thank you for all of the effort that you have put into your bible character outfits. The children looked amazing and a great day was had by all!
We have been looking at the different roles of people in our community and considering how they help us e.g. postman/woman delivers our mail and parcels. We have also been helping the children to identify the equipment that these people commonly use and why.
On Friday 24th February our lollipop lady (crossing patrol officer), Debbie came in to visit the children. The children had prepared interview questions for her and listened carefully to her responses.
Test your child to see if they remember Debbie’s responses to the following:
- Why do you wear a yellow (high-visibility) hat?
- Do you get paid?
- Have you ever saved someone from getting run over?
- How many cars do you stop (in a day)?
- Where do you keep your stop sign?
- What do you do if it rains?
- Who gave you the job?
