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!
As part of our school initiative to get everyone reading more books for fun, we took a short walk to our local ideas store. Many of us have visited it before but this time it was a little more special because the kind members of staff gave us a tour of the whole building.
We went all the way to the very top floor and looked out of the giant glass windows. We saw the train station and the market – what can you see?
After our tour we went into the children’s library and looked around for our favourite books. Some of us wanted to find fairy tales, others wanted to read books about giant’s and dinosaurs and some of us found books about things we can make and do.
Did you know the Ideas Store has a story telling session every day? Well they do, and we got to have a special one just for us!
The children really enjoyed exploring the Ideas Store and learnt a lot about all the fantastic things you can do in a library!
