Chicken & Strawberries...

Or ECO Club has started again this term with some new members. This week, we cleaned out the chickens, cleared the path of leaves and, in the African Garden,  planted some strawberry plants that were bought from the ‘bargain bin’ at the local garden centre. We didn't like to think  that they would go to waste! 

Naturally, the chickens came to see what was going on…

Year 4 Science - All Living Things

This week, 4C and 4M used the Sculpture Garden in their Science lesson. They plan to ‘construct classification keys to assign living things to different groups’ but first they had to collect mini-beasts so they could learn to ‘identify & name a variety of living things (plants & animals) in the local environment’.

Take a look at some of the creatures they collected. Do you know what they all are?

Chicken holiday...

Chicken News! The two new hens are enjoying their summer holiday in Mr. Crone’s vegetable plot!

After a tentative couple of weeks where the old and new chicken got used to each other, the pecking order has been established… they are now best of friends and make a happy flock!  

The new chickens are laying delicious blue and white eggs!
