When Will it Hatch?
Reception have embarked on a wonderful project....
.... derived from their interests in reptiles and how they hatch from eggs. To continue this learning journey, the children are now finding out the answers to their burning questions...When will it hatch? Which creatures hatch from eggs? Is it just birds and reptiles that lay eggs?
To kick start the project we welcomed our very own hatchlings in the form of incubated chicken eggs from Bowland Farm. What an exciting experience this was and the children learned so much by witnessing first-hand the hatching experience! We also learned how to care for our beautiful chicks once they hatched and then returned to the farm.
We continue our project with a range of magical books related to the theme...who new eggs come in all shapes, textures and sizes? Try the book 'An Egg is Quiet' by Sylia Young to find out more, we loved it! It inspired some wonderful writing too.
What a fabulous project!
