It has been an exciting week in class two. During the school inset day on Monday we received the delivery of seven Pekin duck eggs, an incubator and a brooder. On Tuesday the children saw the eggs for the first time and we learnt about the job of the incubator whilst keeping a close eye out for any egg movements. On Wednesday we were greeted at the beginning of the day by two brand new hatchings. They were tired after their journey out of the egg so we let them rest and dry in the incubator for three hours until they were ready to be moved to the brooder. We were also incredibly lucky to later see the third duckling hatch before our eyes in the classroom. The video below shows the experience for children to look back and reflect upon.
