The birth of ten chicks in an Ilford primary school was a great way for reception pupils to become actively involved in the farm topic which they have been working on.

Fullwood Primary School, Burford Close hosted an egg-stravaganza on Friday to celebrate that the eggs they had been nurturing for the past few weeks had finally hatched.

The parents were invited into the school for what reception teacher Sally Jones described as: “An exciting Friday morning with scrambled eggs, egg-and-spoon race and other egg-related events”.

Reception student Ethan Stretfield, five, said he was amazed that the chicks were “quite big now” and wanted to teach others that “when it’s been three weeks they hatch”.

Ethan and his classmate Tia Palmer, five, said they both had a great time enjoying the games throughout the day.

Tia explained: “We had an egg-and-spoon race and I made a clay chick for my mum! We also made a house for the chicks out of Lego”.

Miss Jones said the project had: “Got a lot of positive feedback from the parents who were able to experience a learning journey with their children”.

She also said the children were very glad that they had the opportunity to invite their parents into the school to show them what they were doing.

The chicks will now be leaving the school to grow up on a farm which the children are can visit in the future.
