Writing

In Year 1 this half term we have been very excited as we have been looking after 6 eggs in an incubator to hatch into Rhode Island Red chicks.  In readiness for our new arrivals we have been been researching and finding out lots of information about chickens and writing non-chronological reports and information sheets.  We have learnt lots of new words and now know a lot about chicks and chickens.  These are some of the words we have learnt, do you know what they are?

 

incubator, chick, hen, cockerel, beak, wattle, comb, feathers, claws, coop

 

Our eggs arrived and we kept them in an incubator to keep them warm.

On 20th May we 'candled' the eggs to see if we had any chicks inside them.   Candling means that we shone a light behind the eggs.  If we could see some veins in the egg it meant that we could have a chick.  If we couldn't see anything it meant that there was not a chick in there.  We found out that 5 of the eggs had chicks.
