A visit from our chickens - look how they have grown!!!


Year 5 had some very special visitors at the end of the term, as Mrs Parkinson's brother came with one of the chickens he is taking care of following our successful 'Living Eggs' experience in February, when we watched the chicks hatch in school.

It was fascinating to see how much the hen had grown and we enjoyed spotting all the changes and differences in the hen's appearance - especially the size of its feet!!  We were even more excited to hear that the hen had laid its first egg that morning and we got to see it!  We certainly have now seen this life cycle going full circle.
