Goodbye Chicks

It was with heavy hearts that the children waved goodbye to the chicks today as they left our classroom to return to Middle Farm. The chicks have been a large part of school life for the last 2 weeks. Every child, from age 2 to age 11, has had the opportunity to hold one (or more!) of the chicks and Year 2 have lived and breathed chicks for the duration!

Everyone has enjoyed their time with the chicks and it always amazes me how much the children can learn in such a short period of time. As a result of our conversations about how to look after the chicks, Year 2 have even started to work on an assembly based around animal rights and how to look after our pets that they will share with the whole school in a few weeks.

Here are some of our favourite photos that have not yet made it onto the blog. I’ve also included a few pieces of their writing this week.

What did you learn, Year 2?

What was your favourite aspect of hatching chicks in the classroom?
