Have your say

There have been some strange noises in the corner of Otter class at Northill Lower School recently – thanks to the newest member of the class!

As part of the KS1 Science work into life cycles, the children were lucky enough to look after a dozen eggs in an incubator. They followed the progress and counted down the days on a chart – but nothing happened. Class teacher Mrs Hopewell said “we were starting to worry that none of them would hatch – the children checked every playtime but we couldn’t see any eggs move or crack at all.”

The children sang to the eggs at the end of last week – choosing ‘Old McDonald’ and ‘Easter Time, everything’s bursting with life’ to hopefully inspire the eggs and to everyone’s delight one sticky baby chick, a Perkin Bantam, hatched on Sunday.
