On Monday morning we arrived into nursery to find 2 female chicks in the incubator! They are now very happy keeping warm in the brooder box and we have had the chance to hold them. We have been very gentle.
On Tuesday 2 more chicks arrived, boys this time!
We had such a fantastic day out at the farm. The children had chance to see lots of different animals. They bottle fed the lambs and held chicks in Pet's corner, went on a tractor and trailer ride, a donkey ride and watched the milking of the cows. Thank you to all of our parent helpers who came. What a wonderful, fun filled day it was!
We have been looking at the changes we can see outside now it is spring. We found daffodils, blossom and different flowers beginning to grow. The veggie beds are now free from weeds so we can begin to plant some seeds.
We went pond dipping and found that the frogspawn has changed to tadpoles. We also spotted some newts and even a couple of ducks in the pond!
