Hatching Chicks

What an exciting start to the summer term… Penguins and Puffins have new some new arrivals!

This half term we will be hatching chicks and we will be learning about life cycles and animal development.

This week we have learnt about how the chick develops inside the egg. We have used key scientific vocabulary, such as embryo, albumen, membrane, pore and chalaza.

Some children have also shown interest in building nests since we have received our eggs. As Thursday was such a sunny day, we decided to go down to the nature trail and find natural resources to build some nests for birds.

We have also started to learn about Islam. The children have learned about the important features of a mosque and have found that some of these things are similar to what people do in a Hindu temple.
