Hatching day has finally arrived!

May 23rd, 2017 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

This morning something very exciting has happened. Our chicks are starting to hatch! When Miss Baldwin left school last night she noticed a small crack in one of the eggs. When she came to school this morning the hole was a little bigger and as the morning has gone on the chick inside has been busy making it even bigger. We were halfway through assembly when Miss Baldwin came to tell us to come quickly and quietly as the chick was about to come out fully and she didn’t want us to miss it. We were just in time! It was amazing to watch and we had lots of questions. Zack couldn’t believe that the chick had actually fitted into the shell! Keep an eye out for some more photos and videos of our newly hatched chicks. How fantastic to have the experience of seeing this happen in our own classroom!


Wooden mini beast homes

Friday afternoon was such good fun! We had been busy during the week designing our homes for a chosen minibeast and Friday was the day we got our hands on the tools to begin making them. We had a great time and were incredibly sensible with all of the equipment and resources.


Awesome artwork

Look at the smile on this boy’s face! He is very proud of this work that he has done today. He finds art frustrating sometimes but he has persevered with this. Well done!

We are all back safe and sound, and most probably exhausted! I expect you will all sleep really well tonight. It is the first time I have been on the Rand Farm visit and thoroughly enjoyed it. Enjoy sharing these photos with your family and tell them all about what we did and some of the things you learned. What bits were your favourite? What did you learn? What did you do that you have never done before?


Rand Farm here we come!
