The spring term is always an exciting time in the Pre-Prep at Crosfields as it hails the arrival of baby chicks that come to stay with the Reception children for a few weeks.
The eggs were delivered after half term and soon afterwards they had hatched, giving the girls and boys six baby chicks to watch grow in their incubator. Handling them very carefully in small, quiet groups, the children were fortunate to hold the birds and watched on in amazement as they explored their surroundings. “It’s tickling my hand!” said one of the children as they held out their palms for the chick to hold on to. Cute!
