Monday 27th February 2017-Day One
We have some egg-citing news to share.
This week saw the arrival of ten eggs. The eggs were laid 19 days ago and are due to crack on the 21st day. Hopefully they will start to crack on Wednesday.
The ten eggs are in an incubator in the Welfare Room. If you do go to see them please remember to use quiet voices and make sure that you are careful not to knock the furniture that the incubator is on; we don't want to upset what is growing inside the eggs.
Each day we will upload a photo so that you can check the progress of the eggs and what happens to them.
What do you think might be growing inside the eggs? Do you know what other creatures start their life inside an egg?
What do you notice about the eggs? They have been numbered. Do you know why this is? Which one do you think will hatch first?
Spot the differences between the photo from day one and the photo from day two.
Are the eggs still in the same place? The eggs have moved. How did they do that? Nobody has touched them!
Wednesday 1st March 2017-Day Three
I was so egg-cited when I came into school this morning, I noticed that some of the eggs had started to crack!
Can you see which eggs have got a crack in them?
Something even more egg-citing happened later on in the morning and Miss Pearson managed to catch it on video! Unfortunately the video file is too large!!! The first egg to crack was ... number 10. Then we saw the arrival of number six. At the end of the day out came number 5! So we had 3 chicks.
What happened next was un-eggspected! I went to see if the three chicks were okay. I took my i-pad with me just in case and guess what...another chick was hatching! Wow! Whoops I was so happy to see the chick hatch that I forgot to check which number it was.. can you see a number on the egg that is cracking open?
Thursday 2nd March 2017-Day four
What a day day four turned out to be! Last night,when I left school I was very happy to see four chirping chicks in the incubator. This morning you can imagine the surprise when I was met with cheeps coming from 9 chicks! It was amazing. Cheep, cheep, cheep...

Today we said farewell to the chicks. They have gone to a good home and we hope that they have a very happy life. What a wonderful experience the chicks have been. We have loved watching them develop from egg to chick. Bye-bye young chicks...
