In Reception, we are very lucky to be looking after 2 incubators full of eggs for Stepney City Farm. We had a visit from Farmer Alex who works at Stepney City Farm and taught us all about how the chick grows and develops inside the egg. We also learned about how chickens and eggs are an important source of food.
We have been looking after the eggs in our classrooms and expect them to hatch next week. We have to turn the eggs 3 times a day, check the temperature and top up the water.
We will be hoping to have chicks next week – check back on the blog for an update!
