As part of our Science topic on living things and their habitats, Year 5 welcomed ten eggs to our classroom through the Living Eggs programme. The ten eggs were kept in an incubator and by Tuesday the first egg hatched and by Wednesday we had six little chicks, 4 male and 2 female. The children have been looking after the chicks and weighing them to help them understand the life cycle of a chicken better. The chicks will stay in school till Friday when they will go back to the farm they came from to be rehomed. The six chicks have all been named after Greek Gods (Ancient Greeks is our topic this half term) - Zeus, Poseidon, Apollo, Hercules, Athena and Aphrodite. Take a look at the photos…
