Week ending 23.4.21
We have had a super exciting week in Willow Class! On Thursday, eight chicken eggs arrived for us to hatch in an incubator. The first chick hatched at 5.30 pm. (see the pictures, below). Then when we arrived at school on Friday, six more had hatched. We were quite worried about the last egg, for although it had a big crack down one side, there was no sound or movement from it. Mrs. Ferguson, kept jiggling the incubator, trying to encourage it! Then when the children came in after lunch, we noticed a hole in the shell and soon after a little, bedraggled ginger chick emerged, much to our relief! It was a girl! We are very much looking forward to looking after our chickens, when they have grown a bit.
It was St. George's Day on Friday and Shakespeare's birthday and the date he died!
We had another near palindromic date on Wednesday - 21.4.21.
