The magic of life has been witnessed by children at Ramsgate Arts Primary.
A batch of chicken eggs has been observed during days included in the pupils’ topic Growth and Life-cycle.
The eggs were taken to school with the Incredible Eggs poultry-breeding team that has five regional, family-run branches throughout England. They claim: “The little gang you hatch might be a pot luck mix of sizes, breeds, colours and personalities. Who emerges from each egg is a little unexpected!”
The eggs were placed in a particular incubator at school while pupils took turns to record any development and researched the passage of life from egg to chick.
They also wrote down their thoughts these were collated using a large board with pictures, photos and info.
On the hatching day children and parents watched the emerging chicks after which took turns to keep the fluffy? bundles.
Teacher Sophie Spurrier is Early Years Lead at RAPS. She said: “The children were so excited so that you can watch the magical transformation from an egg in a incubator hatching towards a fluffy chick.
“They also caused them to be gifts and birthday cards to welcome them into your world. It turned out fascinating to view them transfixed because chicks emerged.
“It is an ideal hands-on experience and is a superb method to learn. It is something they will remember.”
The pupils in addition written their own personal what it really ‘our special delivery’ as part of their topic work.
Here are amongst the first opinion of the chicks from the children.
Beatrix: “It’s OK. My business is being nice, you needn’t be shy”;
Theo: “They can be extremely cute and fluffy”;
Cody : “This one’s a boy C We’ve checked its wings.”
Each class from the school has been invited to consider a reputation with the chicks.
