Chicks In Reception

Since returning to school after the Easter holidays, the children and their teachers embarked on an exciting project. The aim was to hatch chicks in an incubator in the classroom. Three important factors were kept in mind for the duration of the incubation process: temperature, turning the eggs and humidity. So far, 3 chicks have hatched and the children were excited to watch the hatching process. The children learned how a chick develops in the egg and how to care for and handle a newly-hatched chick.
