Chicks!, by Miss Holland

Date: 16th Jun 2016 @ 12:15pm

How lucky were we today when we had a surprise visit from Carla's mummy who brought in some 1 and 2 day old chicks!  Mrs Smith explained the lifecycle of the chick to us and even had some of the broken egg shells from this morning.  She also showed us some photos of the parent hens who were very large and helped us to understand why the chicks were already a good size.  We all had chance to stroke or even hold a chick and washed our hands before sharing how they felt.  It was interesting to learn about the incubator and the heat lamp.....one chick even fell asleep in Mrs Cropper's hands it was so warm and comfortable!

A HUGE THANKYOU to Mrs Smith for sharing the chicks with us and we can't wait to see them again in a couple of weeks to see their down change to feathers and how much they have grown laugh

Easter Service, by Miss Holland

Date: 21st Mar 2016 @ 12:27pm

We had a wonderful Easter service at Mossley church today with the Reverend Taylor.  We thought about 'Spring', new life, flowers and growth.  Rev.Taylor planted some sunflower seeds and we discussed what is needed to help them to grow.  Rev. Taylor then made the link between Spring and Easter for us, comparing the seed in the soil growing up into a flower to Jesus dying and coming alive again.  He then gave us the pots to take back to school with us and watch grow.  We enjoyed singing our Easter songs and reciting our poem.  

Once back to school we celebrated 'Palm Sunday' by creating our own palm leaves and holding a procession around the playground pretending to welcome Jesus into town......"Hosanna to the King!"   We are looking forward to the rest of the week and the many Easter activities in store laugh
