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.
