After our chicks went back to the farm it got a little lonely in our Year 1 classrooms.
We have had an exciting new arrival of 10 caterpillars in each Year 1 class!
Over the next couple of weeks we will watch them grow and grow into big caterpillars and how they transform in their chrysalis’ into butterflies!
Check back to watch our caterpillars grow!!

We have had such an exciting few days watching our 10 eggs hatch into chicks!
We have had 5 girls –
Fluffy and Happy
And 5 boys –
Maxie and Chicky!
Now the real fun begins!
Watch our eggs hatching and growing throughout the week from the link below. Can you guess which one will hatch first? Can you think of some names?

In Year 1 we held an investigation to see whether an egg would crack from a height!
We tried dropping it from lots of different heights and observed what happened to the egg each time.
Afterwards, we had a discussion about how we could protect the egg from breaking if we dropped it.
Do you have any ideas?
Year 1 had a very exciting visit today from Andy the Bug man to start our new topic, Eggs – let’s get cracking!
We got to meet lots of different creepy crawlies and we learnt so much about them all!
We met reptiles, molluscs, arachnids and insects and learnt about their life cycles. We even got to touch and hold some of them!
We are so excited to learn more about different creatures that lay eggs, check back soon to see what we get up to!
