Chicks hatching at The Lawns Nursery School
Farmer Pete gave us some chicken eggs from his farm which we put in the incubator and looked after for 21 days. At group time we learnt about the life cycle of a chick including new vocabulary such as embryo, egg tooth and life cycle. Last week the first chick hatched followed by another 6. All the children have had the opportunity to hold the chicks and have been helping to care for them by reminding the adults to give them food and water daily.
