Spring is here!

BabyChicksOnce again we have our hatching eggs in the nursery. They arrive as eggs in an incubator, we watch them break out of their shells and begin life with lots of noise and bustle. The children love it – they draw the eggs, count them, talk and sing songs about them and finally watch as they are transferred to a larger enclosure. Once they are old enough to leave school we will be able to follow their progress with lots of photos.
