The Year 1 team
Just a reminder that there is no Code Club today because it has finished for the term.
We have had some turkey eggs in an incubator in the Discovery Zone for the past 28 days which the children in year 1 and 2 have been watching closely. They were delighted to come into school this morning to find that 8 of the eggs had hatched overnight. The poults (the name for a baby turkey) will stay in school for a couple of weeks before they start getting too big. They will then go to live in a vinery where the adult turkeys who laid the eggs live.
The year 1 and 2 children are really enjoying looking at the poults and are looking forward to giving them cuddles! They have even been inspired to make baby turkeys out of clay and junk modelling!
There will be no Code Club next week (Thursday 6th April) due to the Spring Fayre talking place that afternoon.
Code Club will begin again after the holidays on Thursday 27th April.
We hope you have an enjoyable holiday!
Mrs Bramley and Mrs Karia
