This week we had some very special guests come into the nursery!
One of our families have some bantam chicks at home, and on Tuesday, four of these came for a visit!
All of the children took turns looking at the two-week old chicks, seeing their soft feathers, listening to their cheeping, and watching them have a snack. We very much look forward to another visit when they are fully grown.
To follow this, on Thursday we also had tadpoles in nursery, which again caused lots of excitement and interest: plenty of discussion of the life-cycle of a frog, accompanied by the models of each stage that we have.
We would like to say a huge thank you to both families for sharing their special young animals with us.
