Chick Out Reception!

They'd watched them hatch, sleep, grow and play in their special box for 10 days, but recently the children in Reception had to say a reluctant goodbye to the little chicks that had come to visit their classrooms. 

A significant part of the 'exploring the outside world' topic, ten eggs were delivered to the classroom in March for the children to watch hatch when the time came.  They then continued to observe them until the chicks were old enough for the children to handle.  The children were naturally curious about the chicks coming out of their box and couldn't wait to hold them to see how soft their feathers were.     

'It's using my arm as a stick to climb on!" one little girl said excitedly.  Cute!
