Reception thoroughly enjoyed learning about the life cycle of a chicken by having real chicks in the classroom. We were introduced to eggs that then hatched into fluffy chicks. We learnt how to clean them out and help them to grow by giving them food and water and keeping them warm. We loved holding them and it was great to see all the staff and other classes when they came to visit the chicks. We used our knowledge to answer their questions and help them to learn more about them. After the chicks had gone we wrote letters to the Farmer to say thank you. We loved using the different areas in our classroom to learn more about chicks and apply our knowledge.
